Winemaker Notes

 

‘C’ Blanc du Castel is a white wine made purely of Chardonnay grapes (100%). Using French oak barrels, the wine is fermented and then set to mature in its residual sugars for about a year, Bourgogne style.
‘C’ Blanc du Castel is known for its rich and buttery bouquet and refreshing acidity; it bears a full round flavor, with a touch of citrus, tropical fruit and roasted almonds. This is a well-balanced wine with a fine long finish. It reaches its peak about 4 years after its harvest, and the recommended serving temperature is 12-14 degrees Celsius.

 

Domaine du Castel Winery was founded in 1988 in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem. Eli ben Zaken founded it as an estate winery, and his wines have become world famous. This wine is 100% Chardonnay. Domaine du Castel is an Estate West of Jerusalem at an altitude of 2400 feet. The vineyards are planted at a density of 6700 vines per hectare and produce very small yields. The grapes were handpicked and the must was barrel fermented and aged 12 months on its lees in French oak.
