Winemaker Notes

Pale gold. Scents of apricot, citrus, tropical fruits with a hint of ginger. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, with flavors of tropical and citrus fruit against a backdrop of refreshing acidity. Flavors of lemon, kumquat, grapefruit, peach and cream.

Enjoy on its own or as a perfect complement to creamy pastas, chicken, turkey and fresh fish entrees.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Special Reserve white is a 60/40 blend of Roussanne and Marsanne, aged for six months in French barriques (30% new, the rest used). It comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This started to show well when it hit mid-50 degrees Fahrenheit. At that point, it had a touch of mushrooms and velvety texture. The mushrooms and earth gave way to fine fruit with a rich, lush feel. Then, it added some tension and grip on the finish. There's a lot going on here, but in terms of concentration and structure, it seems rather superlative this year. It finishes with flavor, tinged with a touch of metal. It will be interesting to see how this ages, but there is no harm drinking it now. It can still improve. We'll take the aging curve in stages.

Recanati, Israel
Recanati Gil Shatsberg Winery Image
The story of the Recanati Winery, a new producer of high quality Mediterranean wines, begins with a profound bond with the Land of Israel coupled with a passion for fine wines. With the creation of the winery, L. Recanati's cherished, lifelong dream to produce truly world-class wines has finally reached fruition.

Owner of one of the finest private wine collections in Israel, L. Recanati is a successful international banker and a member of one of Israel's most prominent families. Prior to making their home in Israel in the early 1900s, Recanati's ancestors had lived for centuries in Italy, one of the world's premier sources of fine wines. Consequently, Italy and the U.S. (where Recanati spent a portion of his student years and met his American-born wife) represent the winery's first two export markets.

Chief winemaker at Recanati is Lewis Pasco, an American-born graduate of the U.C. Davis wine program and an accomplished chef. Formerly a winemaker at Napa Valley's Chimney Rock and for Sonoma's Marimar Torres, Lewis brings to Recanati a devotion to artistry and craftsmanship in winemaking. This dedication, combined with Recanati's state-of-the-art winemaking facility, has led to an impressive line of wines.

With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.
