Some recommended blends


The wall-to-wall tasting tables at KFWE2019 can make your head spin — before you’ve drunk a drop. This should be a great show for the Israeli wines, as 2016 was a fantastic vintage. Among the fabulous blends to sniff and swirl, these are particularly worth seeking out: 

Flam Noble 2014 
A powerful, full-bodied red with plenty of fruit from this family-owned winery in the heart of the Judean Hills where they have made wine for 21 years. This is one of their premium wines. 
Castel Grand Vin 2016
 A mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot from another family winery with a long history — founded in 1992. It’s the first vintage to come out of the winery’s new state-of-the-art premises and promises to be a cracker. 
Five Stones - Virtuous 2016 
Another blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot but from a new boutique winery. Five Stones — named for the smooth stones David picked up when fighting Goliath — has been founded by a group of experienced wine makers. 
With kosher winemakers exhibiting from across the globe, there will be plenty to try at this year’s show.
