Wine Spectator magazine is putting Israeli wines on its front cover for its October 15 issue.
You can see how they rate over a hundred Israeli wines here.
I wondered if the higher-priced wines would tend to be of better quality. So I ran the numbers:
There was an extremely weak correlation (0.081) between price and score.
The best bargains would be the Barkan Chardonnay Judean Hills Special Reserve 2012, with a score of 91 for $25, and the Tzora Judean Hills White 2014, with a score of 92 for $30.
It is notable that the best wines tend to come from the Judean Hills - in other words, in areas that the world wants Jews to abandon to people for whom drinking wine, by and large, is considered a sin.
UPDATE: Tzora Vineyards is actually on the west side of the Green Line (h/t Danny). Others are as well (h/t Ron.)
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
