(2018) A blend of 60% Merlot, 22% Malbec and 18% Cabernet Franc from high-density vineyards planted at 700 metres altitude, west of Jerusalem. Pale salmon pink, a little bit of reductive sulphur character has to be swirled away, to reveal a quite delicate and definitely cool fruit character, and a racy palate with bright and dry acidity and some small red berry fruitiness. Once past that reduction this is really rather a nice wine, but the £30 price tag is harder to swallow than the stuff in the bottle perhaps.
(2018) A blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from mountain vineyards at 700 metres close to Jerusalem, this kosher wine has a medium salmon colour, and a dry, cranberry and redcurrant fruit character aromatically. In the mouth it is balanced by good acidity, but perhaps lacks the finesse of the best examples here.
