as harvest time came again i once again visited sea horse winery to help with grape sorting (3rd vintage for me).
after a satisfying day of hard work i fetched a couple of bottles.
this is 2019 wild chenin whose 🍇 i helped sorting 2 years ago. so some of my sweat went in the bottle, metaphorically.
100% estate grown chenin blanc.
9 months in french oak.
green with gold hints 👀
honeysuckle and other freshly chopped 🌻, vanilla, yogurt, thyme, green apple, peach, apricot, lemon and lime👃
medium + body.
medium + acidity.
oak spices including vanilla and clove, green apple, peach, apricot, grapefruit peel, lemon and lime, salted nuts, flowers and some grated ginger and white pepper, yogurt and a hint of cheese. lovely and complex 👄
medium + 🎯
amazing wine. and that's about it.
great vfm (110 nis). even better in exchange for labor.
was nice with smoked Wheat (friki), spiced garlicky yogurt and super fresh Israeli salad.
but the wine rises above it all.
one of the best Israeli whites i had, if not the best. and consistent.
a few more years will make it even better. — a month ago
Medium gold with a slight tinge of greenish undertones. The bouquet truly blossoms with a burst of pretty flowers and wheat stalks. The customary citrus notes are here showcasing dried pears, lime zest, and some slightly intense lemon. This really is quite a lovely nose going on here. Flint and minerality begin to shine with time in the glass.
A fuller bodied Chablis but still light on its feet. Swaying gracefully the entire time, it comes to life in the glass. High acidity and dry with charisma. The fruit is polished and juicy. Surprising amount of depth for this price point. Herbs and apples on the palate along with more citrus and a dab of honey. Medium long finish with a bit of spice. This is really fun. — 2 months ago
I love how a really great saison plays tricks on my mind. The nose can smell a bit heavy with a ton of funk, spice, malt/wheat, and flowers. Then initially the palate is big with a bunch of flavor and some bitter bite, but as it finishes it is all integrated into a beautiful clean dry finish just begging for another sip. This may be the best and it is always wonderful. 9/16/2020 bottle date. — 3 months ago
