Yarden Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine possesses a delicate, yet complex mixture of characters, including lemon, apple and floral notes, all layered with a hint of rich toast. The wine’s generous acidity leads into a tasty and fresh finish. While ready to drink, Yarden Blanc de Blancs will age gracefully for a few years after disgorging. The wine makes an excellent and festive aperitif, paired with canapes on the rich and/or salty side, such as caviar or pate. Yarden Blanc de Blancs’ subtle flavors also pair well with delicately flavored foods, such as sushi or pan-fried chicken breasts finished with a splash of Blanc de Blancs.
Yarden Blanc de Blancs is made entirely from Chardonnay, strictly according to the traditional method, including: hand-harvesting, whole-cluster pressing and secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine has aged for a minimum of three years with the tirage yeast.
|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.
