Eastern Mediterranean 9th Pour: Domain du Castel

For today's 9th Pour Costas Mouzouras talks about Domain du Castel, a winery in the Judean Hills, about 750 meters above sea level, outside of Jerusalem, Israel.

This Chardonnay happens to be one of Costas' favorite whites coming out of Israel. The vineyard is planted on a rock plateau, and the wines are simply scrumptious, the combination of the whole fruit and the terroir is an unbelievable combination to enjoy. Cheers!
