Sauvignon Blanc

Dry White Wine

Binyamina Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes from a mature vineyard near Kerem Ben Zimra, situated at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level. The mild climate, which is marked by especially cool nights and sweltering, dry days, enables the grapes to develop optimum aromas while maintaining excellent acidity levels.

Winemaking Process

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested by hand at dawn to optimize grape ripeness and enhance the accumulation of rich grape aromas while maintaining a refreshing character. The grapes arrive at the winery and are promptly destemmed and pressed to extract the free-run juice. Natural stabilization is followed by alcoholic fermentation of the clear juice. Slow fermentation at a temperature of 12°C is the next stage, after which the wine is briefly aged in a stainless steel tank prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

The location of the vineyard in one of Israel's finest wine regions and a relatively long ripening period have endowed this wine with a powerful array of aromas and excellent freshness. The wine is your typical Sauvignon Blanc on the nose, with zesty citrus fruit, garden-fresh herbal notes and lightly tropical characteristics of melon and grapefruit. A mouthful of rich and bold flavors meets the palate together with a crispness that makes it quite food friendly. It should be enjoyed as a young wine, but can mature for two to three years in the bottle.
