Rouge 16

This wine is Lewinsohn winery’s purest expression of the vintage, soil and the grape varieties. Release Date: December 2018. Production: 520 Cases. Varietals: Petite Sirah 80%, Carignan 20%. Alcohol: 13%. Terrior: Upper Galilee, Terra Rossa. Jerusalem Hills, Limestone. Winemaking: Fermented in small, open top tanks, with frequent punch down. About 30% of the grapes were fermented with their stalks (as “Vendangeentiere” or “Whole cluster” fermentation). Skin contact is limited to the duration of fermentation extracting the purest expression of the carefully chosen fruit. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined. Tasting Notes: Red & Black fruit, Lavender, black pepper and Mediterranean herbs. This full-bodied wine has an extraordinary acidity and structure, and a long and sensual floral finish. This wine will age well for a decade and beyond.
