Golan Heights

Yarden Pinot Noir "Casher" - 2017 - Victor Schoenfeld



100% Pinot Noir, from vines farmed biodynamically and planted in the Galilee appellation in the north of Israel, in the Golan Heights, the coolest and most qualitative area for grape growing in the country. The vines are planted on volcanic plateaus between 400 and 1200 metres above sea level. The grapes are harvested by hand, vinified without any additives, and matured in French oak barrels for 16 months. Neither fined nor filtered, with moderate use of sulphites.
Victor Schoenfeld is today the winemaker for Golan Heights winery, located in Katzrin, in the north of Israel. Founded in 1983, the estate is now the leading wine producer in the country, with more than 28 different grape varieties planted on a total of 630 hectares. Despite the estate’s imposing size, the approach in the vineyard is still extremely precise, indicative of a genuine affection for each terroir, which Victor wishes to reflect in each of the vintages. Indeed, the decision to produce single vineyard cuvées was one the estate came to naturally and over the course of a number of years, as their understanding of each vineyard site has become ever more thorough and precise. In fact, some of the Golan Heights vineyards are now farmed organically, proof if any were needed of the high quality approach embraced by the estate, which seeks to excel locally and internationally while respecting its land: “To lead Israel’s quality wine culture is not a slogan for us; rather, it is our purpose and way of life for each one of us at the Winery."
