Yaffo White Blend (Israel)
Hand-harvested from select vineyards located in the Judean Mountains, Yaffo White is a medium-bodied blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. This means bold fruit and floral aromas and piquant brightness on the palate. Aged on the lees without oak barrels for six months, this lends the wine a pristine, lean quality, and long, mineral finish. It pairs well with salads, seafood, and chicken, as well as good, old-fashion porch-sipping. Not Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.
Approximately $21.99. Find it online.
Darom by Yatir Rose 2021 (Israel)
Produced in Israel’s hot and sunny Negev Region from a blend of Grenache, Zindandel (Primitivo), and Red Muscat, the aromas are a blast of big fruit and flowers. Dry, mineral, mouthwatering finish. A silky, yet clean rosé, this wine is also great for sipping on its own, but accompanies salmon and seafood, as well as crunchy salads without too much vinegar-based dressing, i.e. tabouleh or salade niçoise. Not Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.
Approximately $26. Find it online.
