Teav Emerald

Emerald Riesling

Semi-Dry White Wine

This is a semi-dry white wine made of Emerald Riesling grapes. The grape quality and production method combine to create a refreshing, fruity and aromatic white wine, with a subtle sweetness. The Emerald Riesling variety was born in the Vine Research Department of the University of Davis in California by crossing the noble German Riesling varietal with the aromatic Muscadet varietal in order to produce an aromatic grape fit for growing in relatively hot regions. This makes it feel so at home in Israel’s hot climate.
