2011 Yarden "Mount Hermon" Proprietary White Galilee (Kosher)
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. Yarden Mount Hermon White is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon, and is a great choice to complement delicately flavored foods such as seviche, grilled chicken breasts or gravlax.
