If well cellared, Yarden Chardonnay will continue to please for five to seven years form the harvest. We also can enjoy Yarden Chardonnay with a wide variety of fairly full flavored foods. For a great and unusual accompaniment, puree together green tomatoes, fresh coriander (cilantro), green onions, green chili pepper, garlic and some good olive oil. Braise chicken pieces for a half hour, then brown the chicken under a grill. Return the chicken to the sauce and serve!

The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. The Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin, in the central Golan.
A relatively warm, dry winter preceded the 2006 vintage season. Very low rainfall caused great worry until a cold wet April delivered enough rain to bring the seasonal total to 90% of normal. The relative cool continued to the end of July, delaying the start of harvest by about ten days. Near perfect conditions then prevailed until almost the end of the vintage when, on the 15th, the first of five October rains hit. The precipitation (five times the October norm!) delayed to November the final 8% of harvest.
Yarden Chardonnay is made exclusively from fruit grown in the northern Golan Heights, at elevations of up to 1,200 meters (4,000 feet). This is the coldest winegrowing area in Israel and has proved itself as a great place for growing Chardonnay. Yarden Chardonnay ferments and ages in French oak barrels, 50% new.
