Tasting Notes September 9, 2012By Marisa D'Vari | September 10th, 2012 | Category: Wine reviews | No Comments »
Luscious and aromatic , this Yarden Chardonnay is all about tropical fruit, fresh pear, and tangy citrus. With all its richness it is still balanced and elegant - and a fabulous price for an Israeli price at just under 20. I experienced it at The Modern ... a top restaurant run by Danny Meyers at the Museum of Modern Art. We paired it with scallops and salmon ... fabulous!
2008 Yarden Merlot (Gallilee, Israel)
Very interesting Merlot with layers of plum, cherry, chocolate, and earth. The body is full and can be paired with many dishes ... I tried it with a steak salad at the Modern (detailed above) yet I also liked it with my salmon. Can pair well with a number of dishes.

straw color, fat slow bubbles, on nose fresh ripe apricot,peach, honeysuckle, on palate med weight, off-dry (25 grams/lr?), nice finish - fairly crisp and dry - with some minerals, a floral honeysuckle element, more ripe apricot. a nice aparitif or to serve with an angel food cake (1 view)
