Description

Rare Organically Grown Wine from Israel

Golan Heights Winery, Israel’s leading producer of quality wines, was established in 1983 by four kibbutzim and four moshavim (cooperative communities).

From its founding until today, the Winery has made its mark and expanded its influence on the Israeli wine world. Its establishment changed the local wine map and shaped the perception of wine quality in the mind of the Israeli consumer.

The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.

The 2015 Yarden Chardonnay Odem Organic Vineyard presents bright lemon and ripe pear notes, nicely complemented by hints of tropical fruit, flowers, mineral, spice and French oak (wine fermented and aged sur lie for seven months in French oak barrels.) This flavorful and complex single-vineyard Chardonnay displays full body and a lingering finish.

Enjoyable now, the wine will continue to improve in the bottle for about three years from harvest, and stay in excellent drinking condition for up to eight years from vintage. The wine goes wonderfully with hazelnut-crusted halibut fillets, classic breaded veal cutlets or barbequed mango chicken.
