Wines:
Montefiore Red

Montefiore Red is a carefully crafted blend made from Malbec, Shiraz and Petite Sirah grown in the Judean Hills, where there have been vineyards since Biblical times. Each variety is thought to thrive particularly well in this wine region.

The blend combines the unique terroir, with a hint of Mediterranean herbs and the warmth of the Israeli sun. The individual characteristics of each variety is preserved in the final wine. The chunky fruit of the Malbec, spicy pepperiness of the Shiraz and the earthiness of the Petite Sirah shine through.

Montefiore Red is medium bodied, unoaked, but with a very good structure. It is fruit forward and full of chewy, mouthfilling flavor, with aromas of ripe brambly fruit, hints of white pepper and a clean, refreshing, well balanced finish.
