Wine Profile

Winemaker Notes
An alluring, heady bouquet of apricot, musky mango, ripe pineapple and spice jump from the glass. This beautiful wine is seductive and unctuous, yet lively with an edgy tension. The entry is very sweet with succulent flavors of peach, juicy pear, mandarin orange and wildflower honey; the texture is mouth coating and sensual, then finishes bright, lively and clean. Such a delightful dessert wine.
We crafted this very sweet wine in homage to the brilliant, frozen-on-the-vine Eisweins that have been produced for centuries in winter in the coldest vineyard sites of Germany, Austria and now Canada. Unlike those rare (and super-expensive) classics, this Viognier Doux was made from the same grapes, picked on October 18, 2016, that would become our 2016 Mt. Harlan Viognier, which is completely dry (no sugar). This means our Viognier Doux is not a late harvest wine. The grapes were pressed upon arrival at the winery, the juice was then frozen solid and set aside for several months. Slow thawing allowed us to concentrate the juice from 25˚ brix to 37˚ brix. The juice was then fermented with native yeast until it decided to stop, with a sweetness level of 14% RS (residual sugar). After racking and clarifying the wine was bottled on April 20th.

How holland upset Spain

The shock result of the world Cup so far was the rematch of the 2010 final. holland, moving into the tournament with major injury questions and much less buzz than four years ago, taken apart the defending champions. over and again they found weaknesses in Spain's defense and produced opportunities in the danger zone. It was the worst Spanish defensive success I have in my database. In dozens of external fixtures since 2009, this sort of friendlies, Spain's worst defensive success was allowing about 2.8 likely goals to Brazil in the Confederations Cup final in 2013. In brazilian again, The Dutch constructed about 3.5 predicted goals.

The map does not include the early penalty hot ukrainian girls for Spain, Which did come on a good chance set up by a through ball to Diego Costa. So perhaps Spain deserves credit must 0.3 or so assumed goals chance. in any event,direction, The story the Dutch attack. For years expect said that Spain's tiki taka style is foremost a defensive system, A way of denying dangerous control to the other side. But obtained beaten.

the actual key of Dutch Manager Louis van Gaal's tactics, In anything: Directness. Every man during Dutch 3 4 1 2, It are evidently, Had a simple job to either move the ball forward as swiftly as or to pass quickly to a man who would do that. the netherlands attempted a higher percentage of long passes than any other team in the tournament so far.

As you will realise from the other names on this list, Simply hoofing long balls is not in itself an effective strategy. But this does give a good picture of which sides in the contest have attempted the most direct style of play. The key for van Gaal's side in causeing this to be direct style work was its focus on attacking through central channels.

Ecuador for example paired long passes with a high rate of crosses (15 percentage of final third passes), Reflecting their attacking strategy of quickly pushing the ball wide and looking to sail it into the box. For holland by contrast, Under nine percent of their final third passes were labeled as crosses. in place, The Dutch completed throughballs.

The central attacking focus of van Gaal's tactics may come as a surprise given his formation. play wingbacks and three central defenders, The Dutch might have been expected to try to use a free man on the flanks to get crosses in to Robin van Persie. in fact, The wingbacks Daley Blind and Daryl Janmaat played long and direct passes, But moderately few crosses.

It was a by employing pass from Blind to Robin van Persie that, Along with van Persie's improvisational beauty, came up with first Dutch goal. Spain seemed not really prepared to be attacked at pace, again and again, Either over the top or through the midst of the defense. the netherlands is very close to securing qualification, While Spain faces a tough test in another side recognized for their directness or verticalidad, Chile. Adjustments from Spain are necessary if the defending champions plan to prevent another ashamed.
