SYRAH 2012

THE WINE

The 2012 Gamla Syrah presents blueberry, mulberry and plum fruit notes, balanced out with nuances of earth, smoke, spice and meat. This wonderfully drinkable Syrah displays great varietal character and satisfying body.

Ready to enjoy now, the 2012 Gamla Syrah should remain in excellent drinking condition for about five to seven years from vintage.

FOOD & WINE

Give the wine a go with a hearty beef stew, smoky lamb loin chops, or a slice of homemade thin-crust pizza.

THE VINTAGE

Following the record breaking cold and hot temperatures of harvests 2011 and 2010 respectively, we thankfully returned to a more typical vintage in 2012. The relatively cold and wet winter resulted in late but strong budbreak. A somewhat warm April advanced the season, resulting in a normal start of harvest in the first week of August. Trailing a beautiful summer that was just slightly warmer than average, a short warm spell in October allowed us to complete the relatively short harvest on the 21st of the month. The 2012 vintage brought lower than average yields coupled with very good quality.

Produced entirely from Syrah fruit grown in vineyards on the cool Golan Heights, the wine aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

THE APPELLATION

The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.
