Production Area
Grapes for this Chardonnay are sourced from select hillside vineyards in Israel’s Kerem Ben-Zimra district, at an optimum altitude of 2,500 feet above sea level.


Grape Varieties
100% Chardonnay.


Vinification
After hand harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed as whole clusters to preserve maximum levels of aroma and flavor. The wine is then fermented in small French oak barrels and aged sur lie for a further nine months. Following the Burgundy tradition, the wine is mixed with yeast every three weeks, thereby enhancing its creaminess, delicate fruit and complexity.


Color
Pale straw gold.


Bouquet
Delicate aromas of tropical fruit with subtle nuances of caramel and hazelnut.


Taste
Full-bodied and harmonious, concluding in a long, smooth finish.


Serving Suggestions
Enjoy as an aperitif or with a variety of dishes, including fish, pasta in cream sauces and a wide array of appetizers. Serve chilled.
