To me the Gush Eztion White, the Carmel White Riesling, and the Flam Blanc are starting to change the white wine scene.

Your comment about people in Israel not drinking or avoiding Israel Wine yet this one seems good.. Hmmm
The worlds critics take them for what you will seem to have a very clear landscape view of Israel Wine'"Getting better and better."

The winemaker, Gaby Sedan, generated a lot of buzz a couple of years ago (viewtopic.php?f=29&t=33267) and seems to be a hot topic among those of us here in Israel who generally avoid Israeli wines. His Sauvignon Blanc is near impossible to find, and I've heard it's quite good for an Israeli white. Sedan is known for using all natural yeasts and avoiding acidification as much as possible in our hot climate, and I think tends to go towards the organic/biodynamic side of things, even if his wines aren't labeled as such.
I'm hoping he'll produce a 2011 rosé so I can try it side by side with the Castel and Flam. (They should all be different given that they use different grapes)

I really wonder how many there are of you here in Israel avoiding the wines of Israel. I find this paradoxical in that there are now so many wineries, both big and boutique which offer so many styles and varieties of wine, especially for such a small country. Why on earth would anyone here actually avoid a local product which is more and more becoming recognized internationally for its high quality? Sounds to me like you are closing the door for yourself to pure pleasure. I am proud of my country and its wines.
