Judean Hills Red Blend Tzora Vineyards Kosher 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

“This wine is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 20% Petit Verdot, and 15% Merlot. WOW! Another QPR home run, from maybe the best winery in Israel! The nose is filthy and redolent with dark and red fruit, with impressive elegance. The mouth on this elegant medium to full bodied wine is round, plush, and balanced with good black and red fruit, lovely mineral and dirt, with searing acid and graphite. Showing blackberry, raspberry, cherry, all wrapped with lovely spice in a plush body, with impressive fruit structure, nice tannin that comes together nicely with mad acid and spice. The finish is long and concentrated with great control and finesse, showing cloves, chocolate, fine spice, crushed herb, basil, and tarragon. Bravo!!!” –kosherwinemusings.com Judean Hills represents the local Terroir of Tzora's Vineyards in Judean Hills. This wine is made from selected plots of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 10% Merlot, & 5% Petit Verdot, grown on old terraces with top-soil of limestone rich in minerals. The grape must underwent a short period of pre-fermentation cold maceration in order to enhance fruit flavor. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, this wine has enhanced dark fruit flavor and hints of minerality and a fairly long finish."

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...

"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.
