Kosher Israeli Wines - Case of 3 Bottles Merlot ''Shoresh'' 2005 Tzora Winery
Enjoy Israel's finest, delivered straight to your door. Makes a great holiday gift!
Located high in the Judean Hills at 700 meters above sea level, this hillside vineyard provides the perfect conditions for growing quality wine grapes. The vines, planted in Moza marl, a soil found in the Jerusalem area, produced Merlot grapes with a natural balance, elegance and complexity. The wine was bottled after an aging period of 18 months in French oak barriques. The wine possesses complex aromas and flavors of dark fruit and spices. The wine could be enjoyed now and will continue to improve in the bottle for many years to come.
'Excellent wine begins in the vineyard. The most important aspect of winemaking is growing quality grapes'. Ronnie James had spent years to allocate the finest terroirs in the Judean Hills, west of Jerusalem. Today, Tzora Vineyards owns three vineyards, Giv'at Hachalukim, Shoresh and Neve Ilan, each with varying soils and meso-climates.
The Judean Hills rise sharply from the coastal plain, and exhibit ideal growing conditions for growing wine grapes. Man made terraces cling to this rugged area in a multitude of directions as they follow the contours of the steep slopes. Cold winters, sharp temperature drop during the short summer nights and early morning summer mists, as well as variations in soils from rocky limestone outcrops to ones rich in minerals, all contribute to the character, the balance and the great longevity of the wines.
