Gamla Pinot Noir Galilee 2007
Produced entirely from Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Golan Heights. The cool climate, rocky volcanic soil, and high altitude are ideal conditions for growing classic wine grape varieties. Aging in French oak barrels for 7 months yields an elegant, attractive wine layered with berry, floral, and spice notes.
Gamla is the winery credited with catapulting the Israeli wine industry, founded in 1982 by Peter Stern in partnership with Golan Heights winery. While much of the country is rather hot and inhospitable for wine growing, Golan Heights wines are produced in high elevations with the perfect microclimates for grape balance and structure. Gamla is also part of the brand of wines that produces Yarden and Golan Heights wines.
