Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

Set in the foothills of Israel’s Judean Mountains on the edge of the Ayalon Valley, Clos de Gat takes its name from the 3000 year old “gat” or winepress which sits in the middle of the walled vineyard. The estate’s modern history dates back to 1998 when local winemaker Eyal Rotem teamed up with Maison Sichel, a wine merchant based in Bordeaux.

The estate is blessed with thin soils over a bed of limestone and an excellent microclimate that is well suited to making quality wines. In the winery Eyal uses wild yeasts found naturally in the air and on the grape skins to produce an authentic expression of the local terroir and grape varieties. Eyal imports top quality barrels direct from France for ageing his red wines.

This majestic and powerful Syrah is a product of the balmy Mediterranean climate which ensures the grapes reach optimum ripeness. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months before bottling. On the nose there are seductive cassis, black cherry and sweet spice notes while on the palate crushed dark berries, leather and cigar box flavours linger long on the tongue. A great wine to pair with roasted meats, rich stews and hard cheeses.
