Wines for Passover
Yarden Mount Hermon White was produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Golan heights. It’s a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier. It’s a fruit-driven, uncomplicated and easy-drinking white wine with fruit aromas perfectly underlined by delicate floral notes. On the palate, this white wine is lively, and fresh with well integrated acidity ad flavors of pineapple and green apple.
Golan Heights Gilgal Sauvignon Blanc. A full flavored white with aromas of lemon zest and toasted bread and flavors of lime, vanilla, stone fruit and clove. Wonderful minerality ties it all together.
Recanati Yasmin Red is a blend of 80% Cabernet and 20% Merlot. It has aromas of black cherry with flavors of dark plum, ripe cherry, baking spices and vanilla. It is richly structured with smooth tannins and there is a subtle yet sophisticated herbal note on the finish.
Barkan Cabernet Sauvignon. Barkan's Galil vineyards in northern Israel produce rich, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine displays a deep ruby red color, a bouquet redolent of spicy berry aromas intermingled with oak, and a full round body that pairs well with grilled meats and sauces.
Barkan Chardonnay Classic. A rich nose of guava, and pears introduces this well structured, balanced Chardonnay with a smooth and round finish.
Golan Heights Moscato. A delightful sparkling wine with aromas and flavors of peach, apricot and rose petal finishing with some sweetness on the palate.
