"Sexy but Polished"

Betty's Cuveé 2012 receives a remarkable score from international wine critic, Mark Squires for Robert Parker

We conclude 2014 humbled as our Betty’s Cuveé 2012 receives a remarkable score of 90 from Mark Squires for Robert Parker’s 'The Wine Advocate', international leading wine critics.

The reviewer, Mark Squires, calls the wine “sexy but polished”. He notes “[The wine], showing finesse, a tightly-wound mid-palate and fine focus, the moderate tannins support the fruit well and it finishes with a nice flavor medley.” He goes on to say “The most important part about this wine, however, is its fine balance in general terms. It doesn't open as some beast impressing you with its size. It develops a more refined feel to it and it keeps getting better.” Squires concludes, “This is a nice offering that is impressive in many respects. It will be good to fool your friends with this, because they sure won't be guessing Israel."

Congratulations Ari, our esteemed winemaker!

For us, at Bat Shlomo Vineyards, 2014 was a very exciting year. Our Vintner’s Club was launched, countless fabulous restaurants continue to add us to their premier wine lists and we introduced our first red wine, Betty’s Cuveé joining our outstanding selection of fine white wines.
