Ella Valley have produced a new Petite Sirah from the 2007 vintage. The wine is 100% made from Petite Sirah> It as aged 17 months in oak barrels. In the past this variety was used for blends.Hoever the Burgundy trained winemaker, Doron Rav Hon, thought this particular wine was too special not to make into a varietal.

The wine is purple, with an aroma of cherries and plums. It has good tannins and is full bodied.

For those that like Petite Sirah, it shows yet again, that this is not only a variety that grows well in Israel, but also that it is a wine which Israel makes really well.
