This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grown in the Zichron Ya’acov region. The wine is part aged in small oak barrels for four months, but the majority is un-oaked to preserve the freshness. It has a tropical fruit aroma, a tinge of green apple and a clean acidity.

Carmel Winery is the historic winery of Israel. It was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, owner of Château Lafite in Bordeaux.
Carmel owns the two largest wineries in Israel, at Rishon Le Zion, south of Tel Aviv and at Zichron Ya’acov, south of Haifa. Each has deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century.
Carmel also has two small, state-of-the-art wineries close to key vineyards, to allow production of small quantities of handcrafted wines. These are Kayoumi Winery, situated in the Upper Galilee, and Yatir Winery, in the northeastern Negev.
The story of Carmel represents the story of Israel, and the recent developments of Carmel’s wines, symbolizes the revolution of Israeli wine in recent years.

Carmel Winery has 1,400 hectares (3,472 acres) of vineyards, which cover the land of Israel from the Upper Galilee in the north, to the Negev in the south. Carmel’s winemakers can therefore choose from vineyards with different terroirs from all the wine regions in Israel. Carmel has a particularly strong vineyard presence in the cooler climate Upper Galilee, from where many of the leading wines are sourced.

Carmel produces 15 million bottles a year, including wines of every style and at every price point. These range from Carmel Limited Edition, the flagship of the winery, to Selected, Israel's largest selling brand.

Lior Lacser is the Chief Winemaker of Carmel Winery. He is a graduate of CFPPA in Beaune in Burgundy. He has experience in both Burgundy and Bordeaux having worked at Domaine Comte Armand, Pommard and at Chateau le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol. He worked with Michel Rolland, one of the most influential winemakers in the world today. He followed this with work experience in Australia, working for Harman’s Ridge Estate in the Margaret River region of West Australia. He joined Carmel in 2003 and was appointed the Chief Winemaker of Carmel Winery in 2005.
He heads a department of eight winemakers, and works closely with a team of expert viticulturists.

Carmel is renowned for the importance it places on Kashrut. All wines are Kosher Lemahadrin for Passover and all the year round.
A wine that is Kosher is suitable for consumption by orthodox Jews. The winemaking process for a kosher wine is not at all detrimental to quality. The same harvesting, fermenting, aging and bottling methods apply to both a Kosher and non kosher wine.
Carmel wines are considered suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
