Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc, a very recognizable white wine that is popularly dry, refreshingly zesty, and has strong, fruity and herbal characteristics. Ever hear of the term “pyrazines?” It’s a term noting the strong herbaceous flavors that are derived from compounds called Methoxypyrazines. These compounds are also found in bell peppers!

A flagship varietal to the Loire Valley in France (Sancerre) and New Zealand, the Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand tend to be more aromatic and have tropical fruit notes than those from the Bordeaux or Loire Valley regions in France. Usually fermented in stainless steel vats, Sauvignon Blanc gives a clean, crisp flavor with occasional mineral notes, but no characteristics from oak, like you would normally see in a grape varietal like Chardonnay. However, look out for Fumé Blanc, this style of wine is an oaked-version of Sauvignon Blanc.

Founded in 1983, Golan Heights Winery has played a significant role in developing and nurturing Israel’s current wine culture. Altering the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide, the winery has been firmly placing Israel on the world wine stage since its inception. With vineyards planted in volcanic soils located in the Upper Galilee mountain range, Golan Heights Winery is revitalizing a rich winemaking history that extends more than 2,000 years focusing on sustainability. Uniting the best of tradition and technology, the winery’s vineyards have been the first to be certified sustainable internationally under the rigorous and renowned LODI RULES program.

Yarden is the Hebrew for Jordan River, which bisects the Golan Heights from the Galilee. The label features a symbol of ancient Israel: an oil lamp decorated with mosaic tile.
