Alexander Chardonnay, fermented and aged for 18 months in Burgundy barrels (50% new and 50% used). Aged partly in stainless steel and partly in oak for 7 months, showing primarily pineapple and green apple notes, a simple wine, lacking acidity and meant for early drinking.
Alexander winery was founded by winemaker Yoram Shalom in Tel-Aviv in 1996, and was relocated to Beit Yitzhak, a Moshav in Hefer Valley. The winery began as a small family venture but slowly grew into a very successful, highly acclaimed boutique winery. Since the 2006 vintage the winery products are Kosher and in 2007 the wines are also Kosher under the supervision of the “Beit Joseph” organization.
