Netofa Winery Latour White 2017 Galilee, Israel

Light golden in color with a yellow tint.

Very light on the nose with light citrus, lemons, red apples, spices and honey.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, light wood, bitter herbs, vegetables, spices and white pepper.

Spicy and tangy finish with bitter herbs.

This is a good quality Chenin Blanc from Israel. Showing nice complexity with a fuller mouthfeel than i excepted.

Much earthier than expected, too. Feels like a mix of new and old world wine. Very interesting. Might even have very soft tannins on the finish, which is unique.

Will get better with more time in the bottle. Would be interesting to check it out again in 3 years.

A nice white to drink by itself and talk about. Better when not too cold. Elegant and spicy.

I paired it with a soft Brie cheese and roasted almonds.

100% Chenin Blanc grapes grown in the Galilee region. Aged for 10 months in French Oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.

13% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$30.
