Galil Mountain Winery

Alon Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

very interesting!

asking around for a recommendation for interesting cheap wine for accompanying a family meal, this red blend was advised.

60% Cabernet sauvignon
30% syrah
5% petit verdot
5% cabarnet franc

1 year in french oak barrels.

15% ABV

strong red 👀

a bit of funk and grass first, followed by cooked black fruit and some ripe red fruit with added black pepper and vanilla👃

full body.
high acidity.
low tannins

silky mix of ripe black and red fruit with tartness and sweet oak spices with some greeness and dirt on the background👄

long pleasent 🎯

intresting and well made.
excelent vfm (59 nis).

at the meal there was a choice of ouscous and rice (separately) with vegetables, chard and beans or salmon with thick and spicy pepper and 🍅 sauce.

the wine got along with them, even with the spicy fish.
but it wasn't a match made in heaven.

Shvo Vineyards

Upper Galilee Sauvignon Blanc 2018

second bottle for me from hyped boutique shvo vineyard.
non kosher and sustainable, supposedly.

12.5% ABV

pale green 👀

pineapple and hinted flint👃

medium minus body.
medium minus acidity.

tropics and lemon with biterness on the side and some hinted funk 👄

light 🎯 with some juicy feeling.

can't say i was amazed but well done with firm balanced structure.

great vfm (75 nis).

had it all day long while vacationing in a hotel with the family.
as the time passed bitterness was felt more and funkness became dryness.

not my fave style sauvignon blanc but still very good.
hope to try the shvo chenin soon.

Tulip Winery

Reserve Syrah 2017

Big nose, blueberries, blueberries, black olives, quite smoky, with sweet tobacco tones.
Green and black pepper, lot of other species too.
This one is a big boy, lot of body. Surprisingly, keeps some freshness. Very good length.
Great wine overall.
