Yarden Chardonnay Golan Heights Israel White Wine 750 mL

$24.99

The Wine

The  Yarden Chardonnay presents appealing pear, lemon, green apple and tropical fruit notes, intermingled with mineral and floral characters, all with a background of French oak. This flavorful and drinkable wine exhibits a full body and a lingering and satisfying finish.

Ready to enjoy now, the wine should continue to develop in the bottle for a number of years, and should stay in good drinking condition for about five to seven years from harvest. Yarden Chardonnay pairs beautifully with grilled sardines, pistachio-crusted chicken breasts, or creamy risotto.

Yarden Chardonnay is made exclusively from grapes harvested from vineyards at elevations up to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) in the northern Golan Heights, Israel’s coldest winegrowing region. Over the years, the northern Golan has become recognized for producing Chardonnay fruit of remarkable quality. The wine aged in French oak barrels, of which some 40% were new, for seven months.

The Appellation

The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.
