Wines:
BINYAMINA RESERVE CARIGNAN

The grapes were hand-picked in the early morning hours at the beginning of September 2009. After being destemmed, the grapes were placed in two small fermentation tanks where they were cold-macerated for two days for heightened color and flavor extraction. They then underwent alcoholic fermentation for almost a week. After aging in French oak barrels for 12 months, the final wine was created by blending the wines from different barrels and bottled with minimal clarification and filtering processes.

Winery: Binyamina   Variety: Carignan
Country: Israel   Type: Red
Vintage:   Bottle Size:

The wine has a deep purple-garnet hue with prominent aromas of ripe plum, white pepper, vanilla and flowers. Binyamina Reserve Carignan is a full-bodied, thick, harmonious and generous wine that is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle in the coming years.

It is excellent served with baked lamb and duck dishes, flavorsome Mediterranean dishes and hard ripe cheese.
