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 🍋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)
