Yarden Mt. Hermon 2002 (Sauvignon Semillion White) - Israel

THE WINE The 2002 Yarden Mount Hermon White displays a refreshing mix of citrus, floral, papaya and melon characters. Bright and flavorful, this medium-bodied wine is a crowd-pleaser. We like nothing better than to drink Yarden Mount Hermon White while dining al fresco, enjoying the freshest catch-of-the-day, hot and smoky, just off the grill. Some have even been known to add a dash of crème de cassis for an enjoyable "Kir" to be sipped among friends.

THE VINTAGE Except for an unusually warm February and March, cooler-than-average temperatures dominated the season leading up to the 2002 vintage. The weather caused a protracted season which resulted in a long fifteen week harvest. Picking successfully concluded with Sangiovese from the northern Golan at the end of October. May rains during flowering and two spring heat waves reduced yields by about 20%. The low yields and long hang-time combined to produce wines of very good overall quality. The 2002 Yarden Mount Hermon White is made mostly from Sauvignon Blanc, with Chardonnay and Semillon blended in for added depth and complexity. A cold fermentation preserves the natural vibrancy of these varieties. All of the fruit comes from vineyards in the cool, high elevation, northern Golan Heights.

THE ANALYSES Brix at Harvest 23.6, % Alc (v/v) 13.0, TA (g/l) 5.8, PH 3.38, RS DRY

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. The Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin, in the central Golan.

Yarden Muscat 2002 (Floral Typical Sweetish White) - Israel

THE WINE The 2002 Yarden Muscat offers an aromatic blend of orange, floral, vanilla and oak notes: a rich mixture of fruit, perfume and spice. This complex, sweet dessert wine combines great intensity with elegance and drinkability. Yarden Muscat ages well for years with the wine slowly taking on pleasant notes of marmalade and roasted nuts. We enjoy this wine either with dessert or as dessert. Try it with crème brulee, Key lime pie or cheese cake.

THE VINTAGE Between the record-breaking temperatures of July and the record-breaking rains of the last week of October, the 2000 harvest proved a high quality vintage. The fruit came in very evenly over the relatively short eleven-week harvest, starting with Muscat Canelli in the southern Golan and ending with Merlot in the North. Good fruit exposure and lower than average yields combined to give fruit with exceptional flavor. Yarden Muscat is made from Muscat of Alexandria with a small amount of Muscat Canelli. All the fruit comes from the southern Golan Heights. Brandy, oak-aged at our winery for nine months in French Limousin oak barrels, is used to fortify the fermentation, resulting in a dessert wine relatively high in both alcohol and sweetness.

THE ANALYSES Brix at Harvest 23.1, % Alc (v/v) 13.9, TA (g/l) 4.5, PH 3.24, RS SWEET

Yarden Sauvignon Blanc 2002 (Refreshing Fruity Medium Bodied White) - Israel

THE WINE The 2002 Yarden Sauvignon Blanc exhibits citrus, floral, tropical and apricot notes with hints of fresh figs, oak and vanilla. This refreshing, medium-bodied wine finishes with a nuance of kumquat. Yarden Sauvignon Blanc is ready to drink, but will remain in good shape for a couple of years following the harvest. We like to drink this wine along with sushi, freshly grilled sardines, ceviche or with a delicate fresh goat´s milk cheese spread thickly on a bit of crusty bread.
