Yarden Wines: Wine Review

The NYC Wine Guys ended 2017 enjoying dinner together the night before New Years Eve with 3 very nice bottles of wine, 2014 Yarden Malbec, 2016 Galil Mountain Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 Galil Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. We soon came to realize these wines are not your grandmothers Manischewitz kosher wine by any means.

2014 Yarden Malbec

The Yarden Malbec displays ripe cherry and plum fruit notes complemented by nuances of rose, tobacco and roast coffee. This full-bodied Malbec is vibrant and flavorful. Though ready to enjoy upon release, the Yarden Malbec will continue to improve in the bottle, and should remain in excellent drinking condition for a decade and more.

2016 Galil Mountain Sauvignon Blanc

Galil Mountain’s Sauvignon Blanc is from the higher elevations of the Upper Galilee, considered the best winegrowing area in Israel. The wine is aromatic and fresh with distinct citrus, chalk and herb flavors, a firm acidity, and a mouthwatering finish. Great as an aperitif, and a good match for grilled fish, Thai-style stir fries, and a wide range of pasta dishes. Though we prefer red wines, this white was very aromatic and very nice on the nose.
