Cremisan Dabouki


Dry White Wine






750ml / 12 bottle case


Grown mostly in the area around Bethlehem and Hebron in Palestinian territories, the vineyards are located at 2600 ft of altitude. This cooler micro-climate ensures longer hang-times, more controlled ripening and an overall better structure of acids/sugars in the grapes.



Bethlehem, West Bank


100% Dabouki



Total Acidity

5.50 g/l


Ricardo Cotarello


Traditional vinification with destemming and soft pressing. The clean juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature which maintains the good flavor and aroma.

Tasting Notes

Apricot, hints of tropical fruit and wet stone lead the way on the subtle and delicate nose. Ripe green apple, apricot, pear, and  green herbs on the palate, fading into lime skin and anise. Medium in body, finishing round and clean.  Subtler on the nose, yet heavier and more viscous on the palate than the Cremisan Hamdani.

Food Pairings

Assorted cheeses, from soft Brie through to hard mature cheddar.
