Dry White Wine
750ml / 12 bottle case
Grown mostly in the area around Bethlehem and Hebron in Palestinian territories, the vineyards are located at 2600 ft of altitude. This cooler micro-climate ensures longer hang-times, more controlled ripening and an overall better structure of acids/sugars in the grapes.
Bethlehem, West Bank
Hamdani & Jandali
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.
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. Solid minerality throughout the light body. Clean, crisp and dry to finish.
Assorted cheeses, from soft Brie through to hard mature cheddar.
- Baladi, Dabouki, Jandali and Hamdani grapes are the main focus for Cremisan, forgoing more traditional varieties such as Chardonnay and Cabernet.
- Hamdani and Jandali are both native Palestinian grapes, and grown by Cremisan in Palestinian controlled territories.
- All Cremisan wines are organically produced, with vines being tended without the use of pesticides and chemicals. Vines are pruned, sorted and picked by hand.
- The production and sale of Cremisan wines support the work of the Salesian Monks in the Holy Land.
