The 2017 Yarden Katzrin Chardonnay is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels from the Golan Heights Winery in northern Israel. The Yarden Chardonnay wine displays aromatic pear, lemon, tropical fruit and mineral notes, rounded out with hints of croissant and flowers. This flavorful yet elegant single-vineyard Chardonnay exhibits full body with a tasty lingering finish.
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.
