The Israeli Pompeii - Kosher Wine Gift Set will have it's recipeint blown away by this volcano of a kosher wine gift set. It includes two 750ML bottles of kosher wine from Northern Golan Heights.
1. Odem Volcanic Merlot 2007 - garnet with a hint of burnt Sienna, opening on a bitter note that lingers too heavily despite appealing black fruits. Somewhat firm chunky tannins give the wine a country-style personality.
2. Odem Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic, 2007 - Opens with a lovely fruit and chocolate-rich nose, opens in the glass to reveal ripe, near-jammy black fruits, those well balanced by spicy oak and notes of roasted herbs.
|Wine maker notes
|Grapes are hand-selected/manually harvested. Wild yeast fermentations with short macerations in stainless steel tanks are split between the varieties fermenting separately and varieties blended together. The wine was then cold stabilized. Only the Garnacha underwent malolactic fermentation and it naturally contributes a touch of residual sugar to the finished wine. The wine is filtered before bottling.
|70% Barbera, 30% Garnacha
|Serve slightly chilled with a variety of dishes from white meat to fish, as well as pizzas and pastas.
