Hi Chaim,

Those who keep track should notice that I'm probably the one posting the most on Tzora, and I'm glad to finally get detailed impressions from others. Thanks.

Speaking of their whites, its just too bad that your notes don't include impressions on Tzora's other dry white, the Shoresh Blanc. Personally, I haven't found a way to reconcile their success at expressing the Gewurztraminer when bottling the dessert wines, with their inability to do so--on that level, at least--with the Blanc, unless of course residual sugar covers up many flaws that otherwise stare you in the face. I go back to this wine repeatedly, thinking that my lack of appreciation for it rests in my lack of experience with the grape, but so far the learning curve has proven to be difficult and not as rewarding as I'd hoped.

Here is my complete article on Tzora Winery - a lovely winery with great wines:

The fact that they are now importing their wines with Michael Skurnik Wines, is a pro and a con. The pro is that before they were importing with three importers and it confused the marketplace with different labels and different years. Now the importing is streamlined, but I would be interested in hearing what they have felt in terms of repeat imports from Michael? You hardly see their wines in kosher stores - which being that they pay for the kosher supervision is really not logical. Their wines are great, but are they better for the price than non-kosher wines? They are truly unique and terroir driven - but is that enough? Michael imports only a few labels.

Anyway, either way, get their wines they are great!
