Israel now has a vibrant wine culture. Despite a history going back for centuries, wine production is really rather recent as little wine was made during the period of Arab control. Tulip is one of the better wineries making a wide range of international varietals. A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Gewurztraminer, this is green/gold in color. The nose has some initial lemon notes followed with some canned white grapefruit juice qualities. On the palate, this is round but retains a nice acidity. Grapefruit. Slight sour lemon candy notes. A bit clipped and warming on the finish. Drink this in the next year. Works well with or without food.
