Bonheur vinicole hébreux! — 6 days ago
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
This is a wonderful red blend from Israel. Showing black fruits with cedar, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, earth, cola, vanilla, licorice, alcohol, peppercorn and vinaigrette.
Full bodied and smooth with medium minus acidity and long legs.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This 7 year old is peaking now. Smooth, soft, rich and extracted. Feels like a Napa Cabernet with an old world touch.
I gave it a hour decant, but that was the wrong thing to do. Was better right out of the bottle.
A blend of Petit Verdot and Syrah. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

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. — a month ago
