Winemaker's Notes:

The Sion Creek Red shows off a great combination of characters: strawberry, rasperry, floral and spice. The wine's lighter body and attractive fruit notes make it a great everyday drinking red.

We like Sion Creek Red with many different foods. Try along with grilled salmon topped with a fresh salsa crude or a crispy thin-crust pizza or a good juicy burger. Sion Creek Red is best enjoyed within a couple of years of the vintage.

My Notes:

About Golan Heights:

Soil. Topography. Climate. These are the three distinct grape-growing conditions for producing quality wines on an international level. In Israel, such optimal conditions exist in the Golan Heights. Everything in this magical strip of land begins with the right conditions - in the Golan, a combination of volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and high altitude resulting in cool climate. This is what gives the Golan Heights its second name: "Wine Country." Over the years, the distinctive wines of the Golan Heights Winery have placed Israel on the world wine map. Since its founding in 1983, the Golan Heights Winery has marketed three leading brands: Yarden, Gamla and Golan. The winery has plaed a significant role in nurturing the country's current wine culture, and has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide.
