Tzora Neve Ilan Chard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Neve Ilan Blanc is made from Chardonnay grapes grown on old terraces in Neve Ilan vineyard. The soil is shallow Terra-Rosa soil with subsoil of limestone. The wine went through cool fermentation and Sur-Lie aging for 9 months in French barriques and stainless steel tanks. Neve Ilan Blanc 2010 did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain the natural acidity and freshness of the wine. Neve Ilan Blanc reflects the character and quality of this well situated vineyard. Wine Makers Notes

"Excellent wine begins in the vineyard. The most important aspect of winemaking is growing quality grapes". Ronnie James had spent years to allocate the finest terroirs in the Judean Hills, west of Jerusalem. Today, Tzora Vineyards owns three vineyards; Giv'at Hachalukim, Shoresh and Neve Ilan, each with varying soils and meso-climates. The Judean Hills rise sharply from the coastal plain, and exhibit ideal growing conditions for growing wine grapes. Man made terraces cling to this rugged area in a multitude of directions as they follow the contours of the steep slopes. Cold winters, sharp temperature drop during the short summer nights and early morning summer mists, as well as variations in soils from rocky limestone outcrops to ones rich in minerals, all contribute to the character, the balance and the great longevity of the wines.
