Cremisan Hamdani Jandali Blanc Star of Bethlehem 2018
This zippy white shows apricot, peach, and pineapple on the nose, with hints of wet stone. Sour green apple leads into herbal perfume and white melon on the palate, finishing with zingy lemon and lime. No oak and solid minerality are apparent throughout the light body. It is Clean, crisp and dry to finish.
Grown mostly in the area around Bethlehem and Hebron in Palestinian territories, the vineyards are located at 2600 foot altitude. This cooler micro-climate ensures longer hang-times, more controlled ripening, and an overall better structure of acids/sugars in the grapes. Winemaker Ricardo Cotarello used traditional vinification with destemming and soft pressing. The clean juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature which maintains the good flavor and aroma.
