Semi-Dry White Wine


Semi-Dry White Wine

Binyamina Reserve Gewurztraminer is made from 100% Gewurztraminer grapes harvested from a vineyard located at the foot of Mount Tabor in the Lower Galilee. The vineyard grows in clay silt soil over calcareous bedrock. The region is marked by low humidity and a glorious cross breeze that caresses the vines on sun-washed days and cool nights.

Winemaking Process

The Gewurztraminer grapes are harvested after nightfall to optimize grape ripeness and enhance the accumulation of rich grape aromas while maintaining a refreshing character. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and soaked with their skins for several hours, in order to boost the extraction of aromas. The grapes are then pressed, and after natural stabilization, the juice proceeds to slow alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 10°C. Towards the end of the fermentation process, the temperature of the wine is lowered to 0°C in order to halt fermentation and preserve some of the grape’s natural sweetness and well-balanced, refreshing acidity.

Tasting Notes

The vineyard’s location and the ripening period create the finest in aroma while maintaining a good level of acidity and well-balanced alcohol content. Typical floral notes of rose water mingle with classic tropical lychee on the nose, with accents of fresh red grapefruit. The palate is mildly sweet and well-balanced with clean, refreshing acidity, making it a good choice to accompany oriental cuisine from the Far East. A long, rich finish with flavors that are refreshing, pure and clean is absolutely worth the wait.
