Recanati Reserve Petite Sirah 2018
Wine made from the native Holy Land, where Jesus and King David drank. Did you manage to guess this location? Of course, it’s Israel.
This Petite Sirah has a purple, deep bluish colour and has a juicy, rich and strong taste on the mouth. The complex red displays aromas of ripe plum and red cherry, mingled with notes of dark chocolate, spices and walnuts. With a soft velvety taste to the palate, this full-bodied red will age gracefully over the next 5 years.
100% Petite Sirah sourced from the mature vineyard of Jezreel Valley in the Upper Galilee region, where there are warm days and contrastingly cool nights. The roots of the Petite Sirah twisted and turned deep into the heavy valley soil and vine trunks branched out and thickened over the years, a process that contributed to the richness and depth of flavours in this wine.
The grapes were harvested by hand and machine and destemmed. Fermentation took place for 10 – 14 days in small tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation.
