Carmel Winery Limited Edition 2017
The grapes used in making this delicious wine were fermented and barrel aged in French oak for a period of 15 months. The wine was then blended, bottled, and aged for a further year prior to labeling. Deep purple in color with an aroma of blackcurrants, cassis, bittersweet chocolate and hints of smoke. Full-bodied with a long, well-balanced aftertaste.
Carmel Winery is a historic winery in Israel. It was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, owner of Chateau Lafite in France, and has the two largest wineries in Israel: at Rishon Le Zion (south of Tel Aviv) and at Zichron Ya'acov (south of Haifa). Each winery has deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century. Carmel Winery also has two small, state-of-the-art wineries close to key vineyards to allow production of small quantities of handcrafted wines: Kayoumi Winery (Upper Galilee) and Yatir Winery (northeastern Negev).
