The Eurovision Song Contest repeats itself
The best red house wine in the Netherlands
Text Nico Mcgough
During a recent election, organized by the critical wine magazine Proefschrift, an unexpected winner emerged. Just like during the Eurovision Song Contest, the winner was Israel.
Following the advice of wine merchant Cathy Moerdijk, we bought a large number of fine wines from the promised land. Almost 30 titles now have a permanent place in our range. Top names such as Castel, Adir, Tzora, Sphera and Galil Mountain Winery.
The latter went home with the highest honor because their ELA won the title Best red house wine. It is served by glass at Puur Zee, possibly the best fish cuisine in the Netherlands.
ELA is the brainchild of master winemaker Micha Vaadia. He brought together interesting grapes, barbera (61%), syrah (30%), petit-rot (5%) and grenache (4%). Of course, this superwine kosher is under the supervision of Rabbi Avraham D. Oyerbach
