"Johan Vineyard" Willamette Valley Chardonnay

Leesy, natty chard. Can’t help but wonder if there might be more tension in the wine if it wasn’t 2015. Not my favorite from Holden, but still tasty! — a year ago

Are your wines posting very slowly @Steve Anderson like a 30 min plus delay?

@Bill Bender not that I noticed and I have to commend the @Delectablewine weekend watch for completing 5 of 6 correction requests in the last hour.

"Pretty Things" Nebbiolo Dolcetto

Sometimes your plans change. That’s life. Across the street you might find pretty things. Delicious dry, slightly sour rose to be enjoyed with an old friend and a new and actually young friend. — 3 years ago

Verspieren-Haberer

Grenache Rosalie Rose 2017

Greg Ballington
9.2

@Delectable Wine this is the 2017 Verspieren-Haberer Grenache Rosé Rosalie.

Second wine for Christmas at my Uncles house in South Africa. Beautiful light salmon pink. Lots of layers on the nose with notes of watermelon, strawberries, and white flowers. High acidity (7/10) and light bodied. Zesty and crisp on the palate. Lovely roses, strawberries, melon and watermelon. Insanely long and lingering finish. Perfect for the hot summer day today, love what Thierry is doing in SA! Drink till 2021. (92+)
_________________________________
Love what Thierry is doing with this Rosé and with all the wines and barrels we tasted today at the Holden Manz Wine Estate with Wayne Buckley-Koch (Marketing Director) and Gerard Holden (Owner). This bottling is made up of 63% Grenache, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 9% Cinsault and 7% Cabernet Franc. The fruit comes from various areas in the Coastal Region, like Wellington and Stellenbosch for the Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault as well as Franschhoek Valley for both Cabernets. Gently pressed as whole bunches before settling in the steel tanks for 12 hours and being removed from the lees. Very excited to try out the 2018 if we get a chance, it is supposed to be lighter and more elegant with less Cabernet.
