Enjoy two fine Israeli wines that bring the essence of heartland to your home. The Gilgal Merlot is a single-varietal wine that was produced from Merlot grapes grown in the Golan Heights. The cool climate, rocky volcanic soil and high altitude are ideal conditions for growing this classic variety. The wine is aged in French oak for 12 months, has tasting notes of berry, floral and spice in the finish, and is perfectly aged for the ideal glass. The Golan Heights Winery was one of the first to promote excellence in wine production in Israel. The Tishbi Estate Gewürtzraminer comes from one of the first families to make Aliyah (to immigrate) back to Israel. This light, aromatic wine features hand-harvested grapes from the Judean Hills surrounding Jerusalem. This wine is perfectly balanced and is sure to share the depths of the land where the grapes were grown in its delightful flavor. A tasting guide for each wine is included in the box.
