Israeli wines win on the world stage



The widely respected Wine Enthusiast magazine has awarded top ratings to a bevy of wines from the Golan Heights Winery. The tasting scores and ratings will be published in the September issue.

2011 Merlot was placed on the magazine’s Editor’s Choice list.

Editor’s Choice wines are those that possess unique qualities that merit special attention in the eyes of the tasting panel. The full bodied and flavorful wine scored an outstanding 93/100 in a blind tasting.

Only the finest wines are selected as Wine Enthusiast’s Cellar Selection, wines that are deemed highly collectable. Golan Heights Winery’s Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 is one such wine with a spectacular score of 93/100.

  •  liGilgal Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 is a flavorful, drinkable Cabernet presenting good body and a long finish. With black current and cherry fruit notes, this elegant wine has excellent potential for aging for years to come.
  • Hermon Indigo 2013 not only displays a unique deep purple color, this fresh, young and fruity wine, with plum fruit notes and a hint of smoke, is a fun to drink and enjoy every day.
  • Gilgal Sangiovese 2012 has medium body, great structure and shows a range of fruit scents balanced out with potpourri and spice characters. This enjoyable Mediterranean wine has good acidity structure and is the perfect beverage for the  long summer days.
  • Gilgal Cabernet Merlot 2012 combines cherry, orange zest and berry notes with a hint of fresh herbs. A equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, this complex wine presents medium to heave body with a satisfying flavor.
  • Herman Red 2013 , one of Golan Heights Winery’s most popular and best value wines is wonderfully versatile, pairing equally well with a hamburger fresh from the barbeque or a hearty serving of lasagna. Ready to drink now, the Hermon Red will stay in excellent drinking condition for about 4  years from vintage.

Anat Levy, CEO of Golan Heights Winery, said “It’s a great honor for so many of our wines to receive such high scores. This highlights our commitment to bringing the best in Israeli winemaking to the world stage.”
