1848 Winery have launched two wines under their good value 2nd Generation label. Both are perfect summer wines.
The 2nd Generation Rose 2019 is made from 85% Grenache and 15% Barbera, grown in the Galilee wine region. The wine at only 11.5% is comparatively low alcohol, which makes a welcome change. It is a delicate salmon pink color, with delicate berry fruit, and a very nice and refreshing, cleansing acidity. This is the perfect wine for an aperitif or to accompany mezze or hors d’oeuvres. Another great addition to the growing number of quality roses in Israel. Shelf Price: NIS 60
The 2nd Generation Gewurztraminer 2019 is made 100% from Gewurztraminer, grown in the Galilee wine region. The wine is semi sweet (like Blue Nun). It is very aromatic with a classic Gewurz nose of lychee and rose petals. It is full of flavor with a focused finish. Gewurz fans and those who prefer sweetness in their wines, will love it. It will also go well with Asian food, especially if there is a hot chilli spice component to the dish. Should be served very cold. Shelf Price: NIS 60.
1848 Winery is a winery founded by Yossi Shor, situated in the Jerusalem area. The winemaker is the young, talented French born, Bordeaux trained Ilan Assouline. The Shor family is the number one wine family in Israel. Yitzhak Galina-Shor founded the first of existing wineries way back in 1848 in the Old City of Jerusalem, long before Carmel, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, Rishon Le Zion and Zichron Yaacov were even heard of. For eight generations, the family continued to make wine, passed down from father to son. Yossi Shor is the eighth generation, and he founded the 1848 Winery to make handcrafted, quality wines from the vineyards he planted in the early 2000’s. 1848 Winery celebrates and commemorates the different generations. 2nd Generation is the label representing fresh, fruity wines at a very reasonable price. The 2nd Generation Merlot 2017 won the Gold Medal in the Best Value 2020 Competition.
