Tishbi Estate Shiraz 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Shiraz from the Kfar Yuval Vineyards. This rich and velvety wine carries a fine balance between the aromas of delicious strawberries, cherries, ripe plums, toffee, and mocha coffee beans. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and was bottled unfiltered. Good to drink now and will also continue to improve throughout the coming years.

The Tishbi family's romance with grapes and wine began in 1882 when the present generation's great-grandparents were commissioned by Baron Edmond de Rothschild to plant the first modern wine grape vineyards in Israel. After more than a Century of grape growing tradition, Jonathan Tishbi founded the Tishbi Estate in1984, which produces four series of wines, each offering consistent quality and flavor ,as well as value and style within its class. Set near Zichron Yaacov, at the foot of the Carmel mountain ridge near the coast, the Tishbi Estate is surrounded by its home vineyards which enjoy the cooling breezes of the Mediterranean Sea. The Tishbi family also plants, grows and harvests premium grapes at higher elevations to the North, to take full advantage of the cool mountain night air and the long sunny Mediterranean growing season ,and in the Negev Desert to the South, where hot arid days and cool windy nights combine with sandy soils to yield superior grapes. To this day, proprietor Jonathan Tishbi, together with his family, personally supervises the growing, harvesting and bottling processes, tasting and evaluating each vineyard lot separately before creating final blends and award winning wines, sparkling wines and brandy.

This wine was so disappointing that I can't rule out the possibility it was just this bottle. No bouquet, acidic and bitter, no body. Tasted more like stagnant water than anything else. Once again, so bad that it may be just one damaged bottle. Won't give it a second chance though.
