Queen Esther Shiraz/Syrah Kosher 2003
Grown on the sunny hills of Lake Neusiedl in the wine growing area Neusiedler See, produced under strictest supervision of Rabbi A.Y. Schwartz in Vienna, the Hafner Kosher Wine Edition offers you a large variety of fine wines to fulfill the highest religious standards. The Hafner Selection Kosher Wine productline consists of a full range of superior high-quality wines and specialities. There are fresh and fruity white wines, dry harmonic red wines, noble sweet premium wines, dessert wines, Sparkling wines and Grape Juice. Everything for every lover of excellent wines! And we are innovative! In vintage 2000 we could produce the world's first kosher Icewine with variety Chardonnay! This rare and exclusive noble-sweet wine speciality is a real treat for all wine connoisseurs! All bottles of Hafner Kosher Wines are Kosher and Kosher for Passover to the highest religious standards. We are very proud of our method in producing Mevushal Kosher wines. Our method is so careful that the wines maintain their complexity and fruit. Therefore we could win Gold and Silver Medals at wine-competitions with our Kosher Mevushal Wines. Consumption of Kosher wines for reasons of health? The careful manufacturing of healty grapes from "Controlled and integrated viniculture" (a kind of organic cultivation by EU-regulations) as well as the biological and pure cellar technology enable many people, who are not in a position to drink wine because of health reasons, the consumption of Hafner kosher wines! Many people, suffering by asthma or allergies against histamines confirmed the good digestibility of our products and are now again in a position to enjoy excellent wines.
Opens with a light earthy nose. This is a lean, acidic and clean syrah - totally unlike the standard new world stuff, and also very different from French syrah. Red cherries and leather with some licorice dominate - its got a very tart finish and is quite earthy. Far too lean and acidic for me.
