Altitude Series +624 Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

an Israeli cab surprisingly survived 13 years after harvesting.
they say 2011 was a great vintage, so it helps.

nothing spectacular, I'm guessing the wine started ok-ish and nothing more.

hinted tannins at the back.
high acidity.

lots of ๐Ÿ’ (jam with preserved sugared whole cherries), some chewing tobacco, assorted spiced greens and a little dirt.

for the sake of science, a great experience.

The Beta Series Bar Giora Single Vineyard Riesling 2018

terrible days in Israel.

an Israeli off dry riesling and that's a change.

11% abv

medium to full body.
high acidity.

white flowers, lemon rind and leaves, lime, peach, green apple peel and hints of ginger.

on it's own sweetness is hinted.
combined with not too spicy indian style veggie take away it felt much sweeter and lifted the cuisine.

medium ๐ŸŽฏ

very interesting. feels like a good but not great kabinett german Riesling.

great vfm @ 80 nis.

The Beta Series Judean Foothills Single Vineyard Colombard 2018

(French) colombard used to be the most planted white variety in Israel. used as the white blend workhorse. lost it's popularity a few decades ago and now being used again.

most winemakers consider it a fresh not to be aged crisp week day quality sipper.
this is my second try, the other one was ok-ish.

11.5% abv

high acidity.
light body.

apricot, peach, grated ๐Ÿ‹peel and a hint of nuttines. maybe a guava slight memory.

balanced and interesting.

medium + ๐ŸŽฏ

had it on it's own by the pool while vacationing in the dead sea desert area.

lovely sipper and great vfm (79 nis)
