Clos de Gat

Clos de Gat is situated in foothills of the Judean Mountains, bordering Israel’s biblical Ayalon Valley, where Joshua defeated the five kings. An ancient “Gat” (Hebrew for winepress), pre-dating the Roman period, is located in the grounds of the modern winery, set in the heart of the Clos de Gat vineyards, which cover an area of forty-seven acres (nineteen hectares). The regions rolling hills and valley have supported grapevine cultivation for thousands of years. The combination of thin topsoil on limestone- bedrock, coupled with a micro-climate makes it possible to grow grapes of outstanding quality. Clos de Gat relies on the vineyard’s natural yeasts for the fermentation process, imparting greater layers of complexity to the wines granting the fullest expression of the estate’s superb “terroir”.
Aromas of black and red fruits enhanced by notes of discreet oaking and earthy Mediterranean plants & herbs. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and well balanced with fine integrated tannins. The finish is long & complex.
Mediterranean cuisine, grilled or roasted meats, casseroles & cheeses.
Fermentation into open tank, Aged for 20 months in new French oak barrel. Racked every 4-6 months. No filtration before bottling.
