TASTING NOTE: In the ancient Hebrew tongue, the word \"Tzafona\" means \"northward\" and is a nod to the cool (or cold) climate in which this kosher Riesling is grown. The wine is crafted from free-run juice and shows crunchy green apple, lemon zest and apricot notes on the way to a bright, mouth-watering finish. A versatile food-pairing wine, this will shine alongside chicken or fish marinated in citrus or white wine. (Vintages panel, July 2018) Price $ 19.95
