Recanati Upper Galilee Chardonnay

Recanati Upper Galilee Chardonnay is a refreshing and elegant wine. Light straw yellow colour. It harmoniously combines classic Chardonnay aromas with an oak fragrance and buttery texture. The full-bodied palate exudes tropical fruit and grapefruit flavours quickly accompanied by oak, caramel and hazelnut nuances.

100% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from an outstanding plot in the Upper Galilee vineyard in Israel. Over the years, Recanati Winery has identified the finest growing plots in the Upper Galilee. The Upper Galilee series concentrates on presenting classic varieties from this wonderful terroir, extracting the characteristic complexity and refinement of each individual variety.

The grapes arrive at the winery in the early hours of the morning. After pressing and controlled fermenting at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks, about half of the wine ages (sur lie) for 6 months in French Oak barrels. The other half completes fermentation and ageing in the tanks.
