From Tishbi: A refined and elegant kosher wine from Israel, with powerful colors. It shows prominent flavors of plums, liquorices, black tea, cassis, cherry, sweet vanilla and chocolate aromas all coming from its aging process in oak barrels. This wine is good for drinking now and possesses a long aging potential. This dry red wine is produced from the high quality juice from the first pressing of the grapes. During this process the grapes fermented for two weeks with their skins at a carefully controlled temperature in order to preserve the wide range of flavors nature offers. The wines from each vineyard were fermented in separate vats (as a single vineyard) and were aged in separate oak barrels, the blends being created during the aging process. Oak barrels are used for aging these wines for 12 months and the wines are unfiltered.
Growing region: Sde Boker and Kfar Yuval. Thanks to the Tishbis meticulous and professional supervision, Kibbutz Sde Boker succeeded in cultivating and developing a superior unique vineyard growing Merlot grapes. The vineyard possesses a complex and sophisticated irrigation system, assuring that the vines receive the exact amount of water according to their specific needs. The micro-climate in this region provides strong sunshine, daytime breezes and cool nights. The loess soil, together with this climate take their part in the creation of a unique terrain, thanks to which, the vineyard cultivates small grapes, with thick skins and intense flavors. This all contributes to a complex wine, rich in tannins.
