Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 (Full Bodied Red) - Israel

THE WINE The 2000 Yarden Sauvignon layers ripe berry, cassis and blackberry jam characters with rich oak and hints of fresh herbs and earth. This complex wine´s full body reveals additonal nuances of cedar and spice and leads to a long term attractive fiish. Though immediately enjoyable, Yarden Carbernet Sauvignon will continue to improve with bottle aging for years to come and should be a delight to drink over the next 10-15 years. We usually pull out a bottle of Yarden Carbernet Sauvignon on special occasions, enjoying it with friends, family and a great meal. We like somewhat extravagant foods with this wine, such as an entire beef tenderloin gently grilled over coals, but a simple steak thrown on the grill would also be great. Enjoy with lamb and stews, as well.

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 havest, starting with the 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. The 2000 Yarden Carbernet Sauvignon is made from several Golan vineyards and one is the Upper Galilee. These vineyards regulary produce our most outstanding Carbernet. The 2000 is 99% Carbernet Suavignon and 1% Carbernet Franc. Aging for eighteen months in small oak barrels adds to the wines overall complexity, depth and aging potential. Of these barrels, 40% are new, and 95% are french oak.

THE ANALYSES Brix at Harvest 24.6, % Alc (v/v) 14.0, TA (g/l) 6.0, pH 3.60, 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 Galilee Chardonnay 2001 (Fruity Vanila Creamy White) - Israel

THE WINE The 2001 Yarden Chardonnay exhibits ripe pear, pineapple and apple fruit notes layered with rich oak and hints of butterscotch. This is a full-bodied, complex wine with a long, attractive finish. Yarden Chardonnay improves with a bit of age and drinks well for five to seven years following the vintage. We enjoy this wine with fairly rich foods such as smoked squab, duck confit or even Risotto Milanese.

THE VINTAGE In unusually warm winter and spring in 2001 caused the Golan`s earliest-ever start of harvest, which began three weeks prior to normal. Slightly cooler-than-average summer temperatures then stretched the vintage out to a long fourteen weeks. A heavy May rain fell during flowering, causing a 20% reduction in yields. This lower crop, combined with unusually small berry and cluster sizes, produced fruit with great intensity of flavor and color. Yarden Chardonnay is 100% varietal, coming from vineyards in the cool northern part of the Golan Heights, at altitudes of up to close to 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) in elevation. This area consistently produces outstanding fruit. The wine ferments and ages sur lies in small French oak barrels for seven months. 50% of the barrels are new.

Yarden Merlot 1999 (Full Bodied Red) - Israel

THE WINE The 2000 Yarden Merlot shows great personality, combining ripe berry and cherry notes with jam, spice, chocolate and nuances of orange peel. These characters are highlighted with a background of rich oak and vanilla. This Merlot is full-bodied, complex and delivers a long, tasty finish. Yarden Merlot drinks well now, but will continue to improve with a few years of age. This wine should stay in good shape for up to a decade if stored in good conditions. We enjoy Yarden Merlot with bold flavors such as moussaka, grilled spicy lamb sausages, or a perfectly cooked rack of lamb roasted over a bed of fresh rosemary.

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. The 2000 Yarden Merlot is made from Merlot grown in the central-northern Golan Heights, mostly from the vineyards Ortal, Yonaton, Allone Habashan and Shaal. The blend also contains a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottling followed fourteen months of aging in small, mostly French, oak barrels.

Yarden Mt. Hermon 2001 (Sauvignon Merlot Red) - Israel

THE WINE The aromatic 2001 Yarden Mount Hermon Red puts an emphasis on fresh red fruits, such as raspberries and cherries, but includes hints of fresh herbs and black pepper. The flavorful medium body has firm structure with a satisfying finish. Though immediately pleasurable, one can readily enjoy Mount Hermon Red over three years from the harvest. We like Mount Hermon Red whenever we suddenly yearn for a glass of red wine and enjoy drinking it with a wide variety of foods, such as tapas, pastas and grilled meats.

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 and 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 quality. The 2002 Mount Hermon Red is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Most of the fruit came from the central Golan vineyards Yonatan, Tel Phares, Allone Habashan, Kidmat Zvi and the northern Golan vineyard Ortal. The wine completed malolactic fermentation and was not sterile-filtered at bottling.
