On the uniqueness of the 2019 vintage

The 2019 vintage was another outstanding vintage in the Golan Heights. The season began after the wettest winter in years and ended a five-year drought. An uncharacteristically cool spring ended abruptly with warming in May and continued with pleasant summer months and average temperatures for the season from June to mid-September. The harvest started slowly when the first grapes were picked in the winery on August 6th. A heat wave between September 18-20 accelerated the ripening of the clusters in the vineyards and brought in its wake the second largest harvest week in the history of the winery. A warmer than usual October contributed to the continuation of the harvest in high gear until its end on October 23. In conclusion, the 2019 vintage was another wonderful season that provided us with exceptional wines.

Jordan Heitzwein 2019 is produced exclusively from Gewurztraminer grapes grown in the cold north of the Golan Heights. Whole bunches were harvested by hand when they were very ripe and upon arrival at the winery were frozen at a temperature of -12 degrees Celsius for one month. Then, while still frozen, the whole bunches were squeezed gently and slowly, until a concentrated and very rich juice was obtained, which fermented slowly for several months.
