The vintage gilgal brut is a non-vintage wine produced from grapes primarily harvested during the 2011 vintage. 2011 was our coolest and wettest vintage since 1997 with 130% average annual rainfall. The chilly spring prevented excess vine growth that could have resulted from the wet soils. Harvest began about two weeks late with a cool october resulting in over 25% of our fruit still unharvested by the end of the month. After waiting out the rains of early november we brought in the remainder of the fruit by mid-month literally minutes before a six-day rain system hit. The season’s cool temperatures led to average yields and very nice quality wines. Made from equal parts of pinot noir and chardonnay grapes gilgal brut is produced strictly according to the traditional method including pressing of whole clusters and secondary fermentation in the bottle. Prior to disgorging each bottle aged for a minimum of twelve months. The appellation the galilee (or galil) is the most northern and generally considered the best appellation in israel.
