Good varietal Cabernet nose shows blackcurrant and typical herbal and spicy notes. Ripe, sweet raisiny flavours reveal warm climate character with stiff dry tannins on the finish. An agreeable wine but, at 15%, a little heavy on the alcohol.
Hard to imagine Chardonnay being produced in the heat of Israel, but this leading producer has crafted a warm climate Chardonnay that shows nice tropical fruits, pear and creamy vanilla notes on the nose. A hint of citrus flavours emerges on the palate to go with creamy apple, tropical fruits and spice. Surprisingly balanced. Serve with poached salmon or lobster dishes.
This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with a little Semillon shows pleasant, delicately scented green and tropical fruit with a light floral overtone. Generous lemon citrus flavour leads on the palate with lightly gritty mineral and honeyed, fruity and floral notes lingering on the finish.
A classic Bordeaux blend that opens up with attractively perfumed ripe red fruits and suggestions of green herb, cinnamon and clove. In the mouth, rounded sweetly ripe berry and plum, fine dry tannins, a splash of smooth milk chocolate lead into a dry, slightly astringent finish.
