A delicious blend from the Negev heights, near Yatir at an elevation of more than 800 metres.
80% CS 20% PV. Ruby purple deep color, nose of matured fruits, very balanced, long aftertaste — a month ago
Woot! First Israeli wine, a lil closer to completing my global wine bingo card.
52% Viognier, 33% Chenin Blanc, 25% Roussanne. 13.5% ABV
Lite crisp and fruity, balanced. Floral and lemony, pleasant, super easy to drink. What makes this wine successful, is the winemakers call to use amphora, neutral barrel, and stainless steel. Nicely done.

Yatir Creek 2015, a blend of Syrah, Tanant and Malbec. An interesting blend based on Syrah. Thick, purple color. Cherries and plum hints on the nose. Balanced, tanins already soft. Was a good companion to the wintery lunch we had. — 10 months ago
🏅 Rating: 89/100 (3,9🌟)
Hot climate southern wine in style. Concentrated, dense, rich, heavy full body. Plenty of ripe black fruits, spices: black pepper, game and bit of smoke. Some reminiscent of Northern Rhone.
Syrah dominant blend with little Mourvedre.
High altitude single vineyard Yatir Forest. Aged 12 months in large oak barrels (foudres)

Now there’s a wine that gets your attention! Awesome! Paired with venison.... simply divine. — 6 months ago
This inky wine’s nose is a strong blast of dark fruit, and I do mean dark. There is spice and oak, along with a strong element of forest floor, perhaps that of the Yatir Forest. The palate is fruit forward, dark fruit forward. The Syrah takes the lead, but the Tannat certainly makes itself known. There is a grapey note in the background which reminds me of Lambrusco a bit. The tannins are firm, but not as forceful as I expected.
