The 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 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 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.
