lovely 100% nebbiolo Israeli pet nat.
nebbiolo is obviously a rarity in israel wine, but here it is, made in a different than usual way.
wild fermentation. no s02.
we love easy going pet nats at home.
after being opened the bubbles slowly climbed out of the bottle. pouring it it screamed 'I'm alive! so alive! feels good to be alive, ain't it?'
medium + acidity
medium - body.
light and not too complex. grapey with some pomegranate and raspberry hints. and a creamy feeling reminding me forest fruit pie.
paired lovely with a vibrant salad of cauliflower, apricot, hazelnut, spring onions, cilantro, nana(local mint), grana padano cheese and lemon 🍯olive oil sauce. and also great olive bread and seitan 'shawarma' and tahini.
i said i need more nebbiolo in my life, a few more like this is great but only as addition to some barolo, barbaresco and langhe nebbiolo. — a month ago
A black fruit in general, oaky with a vanilla and spicy. I'm a bit dissapointed, I've expected more. — a month ago
This 2 year old Rosé from Israel is drinking very nicely now. Showing a wonderful nose with lots of wild flowers.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, citrus, limes, green apples, white pepper and light earth.
Medium bodied with medium acidity and refreshing.
Good by itself or with food, and gets earthier as it opens up.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of cheeses, dried fruits and crackers.
100% Tempranillo grapes from the Galilee. Kosher. Not Mevushal.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

Aged Pinot Noir with screw top, tasted at the winery.
Brownish pale red color, aromas of wet leather and smoked meat, after a couple of minutes the fruit aromas are being noticed.
Very balanced on the palate, long after finish. A great experience compared to my latest Bourgogne tasting. — 8 days ago
Wow..from opening, a pronounced bouquet of a mature and gentle claret. Chocolate notes with dark plums and cherries. Well balanced , smooth yet thick palate and a medium length aftertaste. — 17 days ago
