CHENIN BLANC

Negev Desert

TASTING NOTES:

Like being transported to a spring meadow, this lovely wine displays enticing aromas of citrus, lemon verbena, jasmine, chamomile and wild lemon thyme. Excellent natural acidity and a bone-dry palate add nerve and focus, underscoring the citrus and wildflower flavors.

 

THE VINEYARDS:

The Negev Desert is an extreme terroir, exceptional for growing flavorful wine grapes.  At 850 meters in elevation, it’s desert terroir where temperatures are quite warm during the day.  At night, due to the elevation, it becomes quite cool. The soils are sandy and low in fertility.  Perfect conditions for Chenin Blanc.
