Montefiore Syrah 2013
This wine is made from 100% Syrah grapes, grown in vineyards of the Judcan Hills on the way to Jerusalem. It shows classic characteristics of a Syrah, with aromas of blackberry, blueberry and raspberry and a spicy, leathery overtone. It was aged in small oak barrels for 14 months.
