Description

92 Point Israeli Sparkling Wine

Golan Heights Winery, Israel’s leading producer of quality wines, was established in 1983 by four kibbutzim and four moshavim (cooperative communities). Today it’s one of Israel’s largest and most outstanding wineries, making wine from a variety of appellations and styles.

The 2014 Yarden Blanc de Blancs is made entirely from Chardonnay fruit harvested from estate vineyards in the northern Golan Heights, the coolest viticultural area in Israel. This sparkling wine is made strictly by the traditional method, including pressing of whole clusters and secondary fermentation in the bottle. Disgorging commenced after seven years of bottle aging on the tirage yeast.

In scoring this wine a 92 Points, David Raccah from KosherWineMusings.com describes this wine as follows: “The nose on this wine is pure heaven, it is far leaner than the previous vintages, showing brightness and focus that I crave, with notes of lemon, apple pie, lovely floral notes, all layered with a hint of rich toast. The mouth on this medium-bodied wine is layered, and toasty, with lean and bright leanings, showing green and yellow apple, quince galore, toast, pear, and Asian Pear freshly baked pie, lime/grapefruit, hints of brioche, all wrapped in oak tannin, and a crazy attack of small bubble mousse. The finish is long, tart, lovely, and well-focused, with ginger, oak, toast, and freshly baked pie lingering long, with tart/green apple and quince. Bravo! Drink until 2028.” 92 points

Enjoy the wine served alone as an aperitif, or pair it with grilled sea bass, assorted sushi, or a selection of savory canapés. Brut Style. Kosher, Kosher for Passover. Non-Mevushal.
