Yarden Chardonnay 2010 750ml

Yarden Chardonnay

Quince, ripe pear, citrus blossoms, lemon zest and tropical fruit characters along with notes of oak and spice typify the 2006 Yarden Chardonnay. Its flavor and body are both on the full side, without losing drinkable elegance. You may enjoy Yarden Chardonnay upon release though the fruit will continue to open up for a few years following the vintage. If well cellared, Yarden Chardonnay will continue to please for five to seven years form the harvest. We enjoy Yarden Chardonnay with a wide variety of fairly full flavored foods. For a great and unusual accompaniment, puree together green tomatoes, fresh coriander (cilantro), green onions, green chili pepper, garlic and some good olive oil. Braise chicken pieces for a half hour, then brown the chicken under a grill. Return the chicken to the sauce and serve!

In 1984 when the first Yarden and Gamla wines were launched, they were recognized as Israel's first world-class wines. Since then, the Golan Heights Winery has repeatedly won the highest recognition at major international wine exhibitions when competing against fine wines from around the world. The gold medals, awards and certificates that now decorate the winery's hospitality room would satisfy many famous established wineries, let alone one that is only 18 years old. The story began when the Golan Heights was identified as being ideal for the production of premium wine grapes.

The chief winemaker is Victor Schoenfeld, a graduate of the University of California at Davis. His team includes three associates, all professional winemakers educated in California, Burgundy and Bordeaux. Between them they have experience in California, France, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. In addition, the winery consultant, Peter Stern, from California, also remains actively involved. The winemakers ensure that the special benefits of the grapes from the Golan Heights are transformed into one of the many wines they produce under 3 labels: Yarden, Gamla and Golan. The establishment of a microwinery for experimental winemaking enables them to use the very latest scientific advances in winemaking and grape growing techniques.

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.
