The boutique bottling of Alexander represent owner/winemaker Yoram Shalom's tireless drive for perfection and his desire to create world-class wines that reflect Israel's terroir. Alexander "Liza" Chardonnay leaves no doubt he has succeeded in his mission. Shalom selects the finest Chardonnay grapes from exclusive vineyard sites in Galilee for Liza, only picking when they have achieved the perfect ripeness and sugar-acid balance. After pressing, the juice was barrel-fermented and aged on the lees, with each barrel stirred every two weeks to develop round, rich flavors. In this way he has simply produced one of Israel's finest Chardonnays. The wine is a deep straw/gold color with aromas of ripe apple and pear. The smooth palate introduces lemon peel and quince with a long, complex finish. Pair with grilled bluefin tuna, pasta with mushroom alfredo sauce or complex soft cheeses like Camembert, Taleggio or Langres.
