terrible days in Israel.
an Israeli off dry riesling and that's a change.
medium to full body.
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.
very interesting. feels like a good but not great kabinett german Riesling.

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.

(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.
apricot, peach, grated 🍋peel and a hint of nuttines. maybe a guava slight memory.
balanced and interesting.
medium + 🎯
had it on it's own by the pool while vacationing in the dead sea desert area.
lovely sipper and great vfm (79 nis) — 3 years ago
