Hohberg Trockenbeerenauslese Ortega 2013

Made from the curious Ortega grape (Müller Thurgau x Siegerrebe). Brown golden color. Fresh nose with hints of mocca and caramel. Nice acidity with lemonzest and orange bitters. Paired perfectly with Crème Brulee.
Interesting glass.

Grenache Rosalie Rose 2017

Greg Ballington

@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.
$ - Given as a sample from the winemaker. Retail prices are R105.00 or around $5.00 for a 750mL and R220.00 or around $11.00 for a magnum. Insane value!

Dona Fátima Jampal

Enjoying our impulse-buy souvenir from Lisbon's duty free--turns out to be one of the only? few? wines still produced from the Jampal varietal. Refreshing with notable brightness, heat and salinity. Naturally, we paired it with our souvenir Portuguese sardines. — 5 years ago
