Typically a stand-out Israeli white, the 2011 vintage of this wine seems a bit flabby and overdone. It still offers nice yet rich tones of orange creamsicle, buttered popcorn and custard, but the oak-derived notes of toasted hazelnut, vanilla cream and toasted sweet spice are a tad overwhelming, and the acidity doesn't provide enough lift to keep it all balanced.
