Judean Hills Blanc [Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc], Tzora Vineyards
Judean Hills Blanc 2016 reflects the character and quality of Tzora’s vineyards, located in the ancient region of Judean Hills. The wine is made from Chardonnay (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%) grapes, grown on old terraces. The soil is shallow Terra-Rosa with subsoil of limestone. The wine went through cool fermentation and Sur-Lie aging for 8 months in French barriques and stainless steel tanks. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain the natural acidity and freshness of the wine. It drinks beautifully today and will keep developing in bottle during the next 2-3 years.
