From vineyards more than 1000 feet in elevation located in the coolest part of Israel, this delicate, beautifully perfumed - not to mention unusual - dessert wine was provided by a friend of a friend, "to be shared by friends." And so it was. The alcohol level is only 6%, and the wine is light as air, refreshing yet elegant. Ethereal aromas of spring flowers and tropical fruits, crystal pure in the mouth with a balance of acidity that keep it refreshing. This wine can easily be enjoyed by itself or with fruit desserts. I would not hold the wine for long, since so much of its charm is in its freshness. - HK 2011-09-16
