"Bright apple, pear and orange notes lead the nose of this well-balanced Chardonnay, with secondary accents of toast, sweet spice and nut. The vibrant mouthfeel is full but not flabby, with an attractive peach-pit flavor that carries through the long finish. Delicious now, but also should age well through 2017. — L.B. (4/1/2013)" (WE)

Odem Vineyard in the northern Golan, farmed organically since 1998.

A potpourri of aromas and flavors; blossoms, citrus, pear and tropical fruit, together with vanilla, wood and mineral notes.

Intensely flavored fish and poultry dishes. In general, cheese and butter sauces will complement this wine well.
