The Beta Series Bar Giora Single Vineyard Riesling 2018

terrible days in Israel.

an Israeli off dry riesling and that's a change.

11% abv

medium to full body.
high acidity.

white flowers, lemon rind and leaves, lime, peach, green apple peel and hints of ginger.

on it's own sweetness is hinted.
combined with not too spicy indian style veggie take away it felt much sweeter and lifted the cuisine.

medium ๐ŸŽฏ

Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Barkan Vineyards Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Israel


Purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, sweet cherries, light oak, licorice, cloves, chocolates, tobacco, spices, coffee and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, black currants, plums, oak, tobacco, cloves, herbs, spices and dark chocolates.

Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a young Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel, but starting to drink nicely now.

Easy drinking, good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and interesting.

Would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

Grapes are grown in the Upper Galilee region. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Kosher and Mevushal.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

The Beta Series Judean Foothills Single Vineyard Colombard 2018

(French) colombard used to be the most planted white variety in Israel. used as the white blend workhorse. lost it's popularity a few decades ago and now being used again.

most winemakers consider it a fresh not to be aged crisp week day quality sipper.
this is my second try, the other one was ok-ish.

11.5% abv

high acidity.
light body.

apricot, peach, grated ๐Ÿ‹peel and a hint of nuttines. maybe a guava slight memory.

balanced and interesting.

medium + ๐ŸŽฏ

had it on it's own by the pool while vacationing in the dead sea desert area.

lovely sipper and great vfm (79 nis)
