Dry White Wine | 2016 | Kosher
vitkin Grenache Blanc
85% Grenache Blanc from the Upper Gallilee & 15% Roussanne from the Judean Hills.
The Grenache Blanc vineyard (the first in Israel) was planted on Lime Stone on the east slops of Mount Meron. The Roussanne (also first in Israel)was planted on chalky soil of Judean Hills’ slopes. Both vineyards produced very limited yield.
The fruit was hand picked at the beginning of September and brought to the winery during the cool hours of the day. The juice was pressed gently in a new membrane press. After settling at a low temperature, the very clearest juice was fermented in low temperature for 4 weeks Thereafter, the wine was kept aging on its fine lees, a process which resulted in enriching the complexity and strengthening its tastes. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to preserve its fresh character.
It should be decanted a short time before serving.
Recommended serving temperature - 12° - 14° C.
Storage: This is a wine which has an unusual aging capacity compared to white wines of this region. Under proper storage conditions it will continue to develop and gain complexity for 3 - 5 years after harvest year.
