The 2020 Mount Hermon White exhibits pleasing aromas of citrus fruits, honeysuckle, melon and peach, layered with hints of tropical fruits and spice. With medium body, this easy-to-enjoy wine is complex, tasty and drinkable.
Mount Hermon White is ready to drink upon release and best consumed within a couple of years of vintage. Give the wine a try with grilled trout with lemon-parsley butter, roasted chicken with peaches and herbs, or vegetable chili.
The 2020 vintage was truly historic, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic coinciding with our most hectic harvest ever. At least the weather treated us well for most of the season, with winter bringing 151% average rainfall, and a mostly cooler spring and summer prevailing. Then an unprecedented heat wave hit on August 29. September, Israel’s hottest ever with daily temperatures 3.9oC (7.0oF) above normal, saw our second, third and fourth largest harvest weeks ever. And the resulting eight-week harvest was our shortest since at least 1994. Overall quality was high, proving once again that we have an amazing winegrowing region, and an amazing team, even under extreme conditions.
The 2020 Mount Hermon White is blended from several classic varieties grown in vineyards on the cool Golan Heights. Cold fermentation helps to preserve the fruit’s essential vitality.
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.
