The 2015 Yarden Syrah shows off characters of ripe black and red fruits, along with notes of earth, smoke, spice and hints of anise seed. This full-bodied Syrah from Golan Heights Winery exhibits great varietal character and satisfying concentration of flavor.
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.
