Pink Israeli Journey | 2016 | Kosher
Dry Rosé Wine
A merger of Grenache Noir & Carignan.
East Carmel Ridge.
The wine was prepared using two accepted techniques for producing Rosé.
Bleeding: In this process, some of the grape juice is drained from the tank in which the red grapes were inserted several hours to a day previously. Because of the short term skin contacts, the grape juice gets a shade of blush and a little of the red fruit aromatic and taste character.
Press Direct: In this procedure, the grapes are inserted into the extractor after light squeezing. The juice extracted is used for making rosé.
The merging of the two techniques, and using different grape varieties, plus the precise production process of prolonged fermentation at a low temperature resulted in a fruity, dry and vitally blush colored rosé wine, with aromatic character and acute freshness, red fruit tastes and the spicy source of red grapes.
Serving: Israel Journey Rosé can serve as a perfect aperitif to any meal and suitably accompanies a wide variety of dishes: sea food, fish, poultry parts, Mediterranean spiced pasta dishes and Far Eastern style portions.
Recommended serving temperature - 6° - 8° C.
The wine is ready for immediate drinking up to one year from harvest.
