From the Judean Hills West of Jerusalem made by the boutique Clos de Gat winery.
Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.
Clos de Gat is situated in the foothills of the Judean mountains, bordering Israel's biblical Ayalon Valley.
An ancient wine press (Gat) is located in the grounds of the modern winery, surrounded by 47 acres of vineyards.
Unfined and unfiltered.
The Judean Hills rise sharply from the coastal plain, and exhibit ideal growing conditions for growing wine grapes. Man made terraces cling to this rugged area in a multitude of directions as they follow the contours of the steep slopes. Cold winters, sharp temperature drop during the short summer nights and early morning summer mists, as well as variations in soils from rocky limestone outcrops to ones rich in minerals, all contribute to the character, the balance and the great longevity of the wines.
