ZAHAV LATE HARVEST CHARDONNAY 2018
CASES PRODUCED: 374
CASES IMPORTED TO ISRAEL: 30
ABOUT THE WINE: At the Scopus Vineyard, high atop Sonoma Mountain in California, our normal Chardonnay harvest ends early in the growing season. But in some years, we let the grapes on a few vine rows hang longer than we typically do for the dry Covenant Chardonnay Lavan. These late harvest grapes achieve ultra-high levels of sugar, which give a lush sweetness and make this an exceptional dessert wine.
TASTING NOTES: This is an elegantly-styled, moderately sweet wine, showing hints of stone fruit, lemons and honey. It is medium-bodied and fresh on the finish. A perfect end to great meal. But it also makes a lovely aperitif to start off with before dinner—or just for sipping with friends.
