Clos de Gat is a walled vineyard situated in the foothills of Israel’s Judean mountains. The vineyard is named after the 3,000 year old wine press (gat) in the middle of it.
The Chardonnay is barrel fermented using wild yeasts. It’s a big wine with a heady nose of citrus, orange blossom, tropical fruits and toasty oak. These notes continue on to the palate and a delicious complex flavour develops with hints of mango, pineapple, citrus, mandarin and butterscotch. However, as well as the unctuous rich fruit, this latest vintage has got lovely balanced acidity and a mineral core running through the wine. The length of flavour on the finish is huge and very moreish.
