WINEMAKERS NOTES
Prime grapes were hand picked from selected vines in the Ramat Arad vineyards. Ramat Arad is situated on the border between the Judean Hills and the Negev Dessert, not far from the Dead Sea and enjoys a unique climate of cold, sometimes snowy winters, with hot summer days, cooler evenings and light morning mist which clears up by midday. The grapes were harvested at night and brought to the winery during the very early hours of the morning while temperature remains low. Fermentation took placed in the rotating vinifiers with full skin contact and rotated according to the Carmel programme, then left for extended maceration to soften the tannins for a smoother, full bodied wine. The wine was then drained into 20,000 litre stainless steel tanks; the wet skins were pneumatically pressed and the residual juice put into smaller stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine was racked into French Oak barrels and allowed to mature for about 12 months. The wine was filtered, bottled and then laid down to cool underground cellars before finally being released for distribution.

TASTING NOTES
A smooth full bodied wine with complexed aromas and rich flavours of summer fruits and soft tannins.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Best served at between 16-18°C (65°F) as an accompaniment to red meats and fine cheeses.

Yarden Brut (Refreshing Fragrant Dry Sparkling Wine) - Israel

THE WINE Yarden Brut displays a delicate, yet complex mixture of apples, lemons and hints of red fruits layered with toasty and creamy notes. The fine, yet robust mousse combines nicely with the wines crisp body and finish. Yarden Brut is ready to enjoy and will hold up nicely in the bottle for two to three years. We love cracking open a bottle as guests arrive for a festive meal, served along small canapés, often just a bit on the salty side. Yarden Brut also pairs very well with cold soups, such as sorrel, sushi and grilled fresh seafood.

THE VINTAGE The 1999 season followed an exceptionally dry and relatively warm winter resulting in a harvest beginning two weeks earlier than normal, at the very end of July. Moderate summer and fall temperatures stretched out the vintage to fifteen weeks, finishing on November 4 with Cabernet Sauvignon in the northern Golan. The relaxed pace enabled picking each vineyard block at its optimum. Low-density vine canopies and a lower-than-average crop yielded exceptional color and flavor development. While made mostly from the 1999 vintage, Yarden Brut contains a small amount of older vintages blended in for added complexity. The wine is made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and made strictly according to the traditional method, including hand-harvesting, whole-cluster pressing and secondary fermentation in the bottle. Each bottle aged for a minimum of two years before disgorging.

THE ANALYSES Brix at Harvest 18.5, % Alc (v/v) 12.0, TA (g/l) 7.6, PH 3.02, RS DRY (Brut)

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 Cabernet Sauvignon 1998 (Full Bodied Red) - Israel

THE WINE The 1998 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon is complex and deep, layering ripe cherry, blackberry and plum notes with oak, vanilla, cocoa and hints of earthiness. The wine is full-bodied with rich, yet smooth, tannins. Its long, attractive finish concludes with a hint of spice. While delicious now, Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon continues to improve in the bottle for years, and should make for excellent drinking for 10-15 years following the harvest. We enjoy Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon in the framework of a great meal. The wine can enhance many foods, from a festive roast rack of lamb to a hearty Beef Bourguignon.

THE VINTAGE The 1999 season followed an exceptionally dry and relatively warm winter resulting in a harvest beginning two weeks earlier than normal, at the very end of July. Moderate summer and fall temperatures stretched out the vintage to fifteen weeks, finishing on November 4 with Cabernet Sauvignon in the northern Golan. The relaxed pace enabled picking each vineyard block at its optimum. Low-density vine canopies and a lower-than-average crop yielded exceptional color and flavor development. The 1999 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon is made from several vineyards in the Central and Northern Golan Heights and one vineyard in the Northern Galilee. These vineyards consistently produce outstanding Cabernet fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon makes up the vast majority of the blend at 95%. 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot add to the overall complexity of the wine. The wine aged for eighteen months in small oak barrels. Of these, 40% were new and 90% French oak.
