Judean Hills, Israel

Clos de Gat

Har'El Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!

Lovely Cabernet from what turns out to be one of my favorite wineries in Israel: Clos de Gat, well made and delicious, old world in style yet still powerful with lovely notes of earth, black currents, coffee, Mediterranean spice and a light touch of chocolate, full body, round firm tannins, lovely acidity. My score 89, drink to 2023 — 5 days ago

Clos de Gat

Sycra Judean Hills Syrah 2014

Выпито в Хинкальном дворике в Обнинске 07.09.19. Прекрасный израильский Шираз 2014 года стоимостью 70$. Куплен в мае этого года в Тель- Авиве. Очень мягкий, не спиртовой 13,5%. Вишня - превалирует в букете. Стоит своих денег. — a month ago

Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

an arab wedding up north in israel.
this is a private label aged cab made specially by mony vineyard(juaden hills) as a private wine for the events hall where the celebration happens.

dark dense red 👀

mushrooms, cigar box, spice mix and some prunes on the background 👃

cigar and spice shop with some guy walking around trying to sell ripe fruit you aren't sure if it hasn't passed it's peak.
a few drops of Lemon juice added to the mix as well 👄

medium 🎯 with soft tannins lingering.

balanced and pleasent. not that thrilling, though.

paired well with the grilled meat that i rarely eat.

the araq i had as an aperitif was more to my liking.

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.
