Additional Information on Ella Valley Sauvignon Blanc (Kosher) 2014

Winery: Ella Valley

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc grapes originated in France, where they are still widely grown today and treated to a wide range of processing practices – from aging in oak barrels, blending with other varietals, and undergoing malolactic fermentation to encourage a more mellow, buttery finish. These green skinned white wine grapes are highly versatile, and are now grown in several countries around the world which have the correct climatic conditions for getting the best results from them. Generally, Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes prefer a cooler climate, as too much heat dulls the flavor present in the fruit. As such, they are generally grown in valleys and on coastal areas, where they can benefit from cooling breezes before being typically harvested early in the summer. The grapes themselves produce wines which are often very dry and crisp, yet full of a wide range of flavors including grasses, tropical fruits and citrus notes.

Region: Judean Hills

Israel is a fascinating and beautiful country, with a history and culture which ranks amongst the most important and impressive on earth. In the heart of Israel, we find the stunning Judean Hills, an arid range of undulating land forms which provide plenty of opportunity for viticulture and wine making, thanks to their mineral rich soils and the fabulous climate they receive. For thousands of years, vines have been cultivated in this region, however, Israel did not really become an important international center for wines until the mid nineteenth century, when the Rothschild family brought their Bordeaux varietals to the Judean Hills. The vines quickly took to the landscape, and today, these ancient hills are home to many of the country's finest classic, French style wines.

Country: Israel

For thousands of years, Israel has been an important country for wine production, with major wine regions growing thousands of acres of grapevines in the hot Mediterranean climate. The land itself is ideal for wine production, and has a mineral rich limestone based soil which helps ensure the grapes grow to full ripeness. Many of the vineyards of Israel are located at high altitudes, such as the popular and successful vineyards of Golan Heights in the Galil region, where the cooler temperatures and strong breezes create an ideal environment in which the imported French grape varietals can grow. Indeed, French grape varietals make up for the vast majority of grapes grown in Israel, with Cabernet Sauvigon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes growing in all five wine regions of the country.
