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.
great vfm @ 80 nis. — a month ago
Непрозрачное с кирпичным оттенком, в аромате вяленая черешня, вишня, танины какие то размазанные, но вкус сбалансированный, питкое. Держать не надо, мне кажется что свой пик недавно прошло. — 5 years ago
(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.

Such a beautiful sweet flavor with a nice full undertone. — 5 months ago
Pours deep, inky red with a glossy sheen. Nose is ripened berries and earth. Nose doesn't last too long once poured. Initial tasting is slightly sour, with green apple peel, cherries and Some oak in the background along with leather and some dark chocolate. Dry and peppery with a relatively long finish of red currants and some plums, some alcohol comes through. Would be better in 5-8 years — 9 months ago
