Vines Gewürztraminer ( %)

Color: straw yellow with pale golden reflections.

Smell: it has captivating notes of lychee, apricot, peach, mango, apple and passion fruit, together with spices and floral
characters.


Taste: As soon as dry, this medium-bodied wine is tasty and complex.

Pairings: Wonderful alone as an aperitif, the wine pairs beautifully with Thai chicken laksa, white pizza with basil and burrata,
or even grilled veal cutlets.


Ready to drink now, Yarden Gewurztraminer will improve in the bottle for about 18 months from the harvest and will remain
in excellent conditions of consumption for about three years from the harvest.


The Vintage

2018 was a relatively early and short year. A rather warm winter and spring with average rainfall led to the beginning of a
season. After the start about 10 days in advance, on July 31st, the flood came in weeks five and six, with 34% of the total
arriving in those two weeks only. While we generally harvest around 30% of our fruits in October, in 2018 only 11% of the
grapes remained on October 1st and we ended the harvest on the 15th. Our splendid summer climate and relatively low
yields led to another exceptional year for the Golan Heights winery.


Gewurztraminer Yarden 2018 is entirely produced from grapes grown in vineyards on the cool hills of northern Golan, an area
recognized for the production of high quality Gewurztraminer fruits.


The denomination

Galilee (or Galil) is the northernmost denomination and generally considered the best in Israel. The highest quality area
within the denomination 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
winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the city of Katzrin in central Golan.

Yarden

Golan Heights Winery is based in Galilee, in the city of Katzrin, on the homonymous hills. The first vineyard was planted in 1976, while the winery was built in 1983 by the will of four kibbutz (collectivist village) and as many moshavim (cooperative communities). Golan Heights Winery immediately distinguished itself for the production of kosher wines of great value, mostly produced on volcanic soils, strongly linked to tradition: their brands Yarden, Gamla, Golan and Hermon have labels depicting the oil lamp symbol of the ancient state of Israel. YARDEN is the flagship company of the group: its name originates from the Hebrew translation of the Jordan River. The first wine produced was, in 1984, Sauvignon Blanc. GOLAN takes its name from the Golan Heights, formed by remote volcanic eruptions. Its wines are produced to satisfy young, quality-conscious consumption. GAMLA wines are named after an ancient city that went down in history for trying to block the Roman advance towards Jerusalem. HERMON wines owe their name to the mountain massif on the border between Israel, Syria, Lebanon, whose highest peak reaches 2,814 m. HERMON wines are complex and structured.
