“Adama” is Hebrew for “soil.” Tabor’s “Adama” series  focuses on unique soils and grapes selected for growth in those soils. The “Adama” Sauvignon Blanc comes from 30 year old vines grown in chalky soil in the Kfar Tabor area of Israel.

On the nose, the wine might be picked, blind, as a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with the gooseberry and cat aromas so common in those wines, with passionfruit coming through a moment later. On the palate, passionfruit, gooseberry, and white grapefruit leads. Citrus drives the mid-palate, from white grapefruit to lime. Acids are very bright, making this wine a clean knife for cutting through rich foods on the palate. Drink with stuffed flounder with hollandaise sauce. Highly Recommended. 90 points.
