- Recanati Merlot Galilee 2011 Product #27005 (In Stock)
Sometimes our annual search for Kosher wine for Passover brings unexpected dividends - like discovering this delicious Merlot that just happens to be from Israel and Kosher to boot! Handpicked grapes from northern Galilee vineyards get a gentle crush, cool fermentation, and then 5 months aging in French oak. The result is just what you'd hope for in a fine Napa Merlot - loads of ripe redcurrant and plum fruit, swirling spice, and just the right touch of fresh herb for complexity and character. Soft and easygoing on the long finish, but with more than enough hidden structure to pair with anything from lamb to brisket to grilled steaks or mushrooms. Delicious and very fine value - and Kosher to boot!
