2017 Recanati Winery, Blend #3, Kfar Tavor Vineyard, Lower Galilee, Israel

Description

Founded in 2000, Recanati has already established itself as one of the leading lights in Israeli wine. Their aim is to produce wines that are varietally pure and true, while expressing a sense of place and embracing their Mediterranean origins. The property is constantly pushing to improve the quality of its wines further, sourcing fruit from key regions in Israel (with much grown at altitude to retain freshness and definition) and nurturing the resurgence of indigenous varieties.

Pale lemon in colour, the nose shows hints of citrus pith, layered with peach-stone. On the palate, this vibrancy continues with chalky minerality and more citrus overtones. Four months in old oak add texture and weight to the mid-palate and support the freshness of the acidity on the palate. Drink now to 2020.

About this WINE

Recanati Winery

Recanati Winery

Recanati was founded in 2000 by financier Lenny Recanati, whose family originally came from Italy, and who was therefore immersed in wine culture from a young age, the modern winery is built in the Hefer valley in upper Galilee, with fruit sourced from some old, high altitude vineyards in Manara and the Jezreel valley.

The altitude gives a substantial diurnal temperature difference, making this a perfect place for full-bodied but fresh tasting wines from Mediterranean grape varieties. Under the expert guidance of winemaker Gil Shatsberg, a UC Davis alumni, ably assisted by Ido Lewinsohn, a winemaker with wide experience, including at Sassicaia, the wines have more elegance and finesse than many offerings from this history-steeped area
