The 2013 SoMek Estate Winery Chardonnay from Zichron-Ya’akv, Israel had 13% alcohol, cost undr $20, and scored a nice 16+ points on the 20-point Dionysian scale.
I aged this wine for four years after I got it. The SoMek estate makes pleasant food wines, and worth seeking one out. The wine opened up for another thirty-minutes while in the glass. I like mature wines with additional complexity. Dionysian Society Members are never stuck on one type of wine; the constantly experiment. I toasted to Henry Gorelick’s 86th birthday. In Vino Veritas.
