Montefiore Winery has released a new rosé. It is called Montefiore Rosé 2016, and is made from 80% Carignan and 20% Merlot grapes grown in the Judean Hills. The wine is fresh, fruity with delicate aromas of ripe berry fruit, with excellent balancing acidity and a refreshing finish. It joins the other Montefiore Mediterranean blends: The Montefiore White, a blend of Colombard, Chardonnay and Semillon and Montefiore Red, a blend of Petite Sirah, Shiraz and Malbec.
The wine will retail for 70 shekels.
Montefiore Winery was founded in 2010 to celebrate the 150 the anniversary of the founding of Mishkenot Sha'ananim by Sir Moses Montefiore. The first wines were released in 2013. The winery is owned by Arnon Geva and Rachel & David Montefiore. Sam Soroka is the consultant winemaker. Montefiore Winery is currently opening a new facility in Jaffa called The Kerem Montefiore Tasting Room for tastings, lectures and education seminars.
