Hamdani and Jandali – Heard of them? No, me neither before today. Hamdani and Jandali grapes are native to Palestine.
If you were going to compare the Cremisan to anything, I would say it’s somewhere between a white Bordeaux-blend and an unoaked Chardonnay. Green apple dominates the nose and the palate, with subtle apricot, peach and gooseberry. No oak. Crisp and certainly refreshing with minerals and wet stone towards the medium-long finish.
Obviously, your first choice should be to pair with traditional Palestinian cuisine! However; since I have no idea what that is, I would recommend pairing with salads, white fish, asparagus, green pesto and scallops.
Retail is expected to be under $15.
