The label says it’s a rose. I think it’s actually a co-fermented field blend of white and red varietals. Drinks like a light red. Good chilled. Has a light spritz and a light, cider-like funk to it. Relatively light in alcohol. Almost reminds me of a piquette. — 3 days ago
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
Delicious—albeit slightly funky—cider/piquette blend. Perfect for drinking outside on a hot summer day. — a month ago
