WINES OF ISRAEL

March 11, 2017
From the Galil region, this trio of wines shows the elegance, power and finesse of one of the foremost wine producing regions (and producers) in Israel, a place which in certain regions, enjoys ideal conditions, as in Bordeaux or Tuscany, for producing internationally renowned wines. Here, everything begins with the right conditions – volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and cool high-altitude climate.

The Golan Heights Winery has been considered Israel’s leading winery when it comes to wine quality, technological innovation, and new variety development. Since it was founded in 1983, Golan Heights Winery has played a significant role in developing and nurturing Israel’s current wine culture. The Winery also has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide, and has firmly placed Israel on the world wine map.

Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon ($34.95): The Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits ripe cherry, plum and blackberry fruit notes layered with spice, earth and hints of fresh herbs, all balanced out with pleasing French oak, a heady mixture that’s immediately inviting. It tastes of these lush fruits, too, with bitter chocolate and walnut notes that keep the wine savory and firm. It feels compact and powerful, suitable for a little time in the decanter or even a few years cellar aging.

Mount Hermon White ($13.99): Mount Hermon White displays bright fruit aromas of green apple, tangerine, lime and guava, with notes of fresh flowers and a bit of grass. This medium-bodied wine is fresh, vital and drinkable. We love pairing Mount Hermon White with a plate of assorted sushi, a serving of crispy fish and chips, or grilled chicken breasts in a lime sauce.

Mount Hermon Red ($13.99): Mount Hermon Red presents complex red and black fruit characters with aromatic spice notes and hints of fresh herbs. With medium body and satisfying flavor, this is a wine to enjoy all week long. Try this versatile blended wine with assorted cheeses, eggplant parmigiana, pasta Bolognese, or a grilled hanger steak.
