Product description

Varieties: Touriga Nacional and Tinta Cao Name: Yarden 2T 2015 Type of wine: Dry red wine Analytical data: Alcohol 14.5% Acid (g / L) 6.9 pH 3.66 RS Dry The Wine The 2015 Yarden 2T features a captivating aroma of red and black fruits, along with notes of rosewater, violets, aniseed, mulberry and spice. An attractive blend of two renowned Portuguese varieties, the wine exhibits satisfying body and lingering flavor. While ready to enjoy upon release, the 2015 Yarden 2T will improve in the bottle and remain in great drinking condition for many years from vintage. The wine pairs wonderfully with chunky beef pie, Middle Eastern lamb stew, or wine-braised duck legs with a wild berry sauce. The Vintage Though we had heavy rains in November, the winter saw only 75% of our normal precipitation. Following a cool spring, we headed into harvest 10-14 days later than usual. If in the past a cool spring normally meant a cool summer, this was not the case in 2015. Indeed, we recorded our warmest ever September, including a historic dust storm. We concluded the harvest on schedule, with our vineyards looking surprisingly verdant. Despite the unusual conditions in 2015, the Golan once again proved itself to be a phenomenal place to grow quality wine. Blended of Touriga Nacional (69%) and Tinta Cao (31%), two famous Portuguese varieties of the Douro Valley. The wine’s grapes were grown in Yonatan Springs Vineyard, at an elevation of 700 meters (2,300 feet), and in Geshur Vineyard, at an elevation of 400 meters (1,300 feet). Yarden 2T aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. 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. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.
