"Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in Spring"
When Nancy Sinatra sang these words in 1966 who would have dared to predict that we'd be suffering under a 36° Celsius heatwave - and its only mid-May - and with temperatures soaring its becoming almost impossible to enjoy deep, rich red wines outside of winter.
With this in mind, and the demand for fresh, fruity and easy-drinking wines on the rise, Amphorae have three Rosé wines on the market, all signed by the winery's new wine-making team of Maayan Koschitzky and Meiram Harel.
MED 2017 is the latest release of Amphorae's popular Blanc de Noir. This peach-colored blend of Carginan, Syrah and Merlot, with its floral aroma and fresh, acidic tastes of cranberries and young strawberries, is a red wine made in the white wine style. At 12.8% alcohol it is a wine intended to be enjoyed young, and well-cooled.
MED Terroir Golan 2017 and MED Terroir Carmel Slopes 2017 are limited series Rosé wines intended to express the region in which the grapes were grown.
The Golan is a blend of Syrah and Barbera grapes harvested from the Sha'al vineyard in the northern Golan Heights. It has a delicate pink tinge, a nose of peaches, and roses and delicate flavors of cranberries and light cherries. (12.5% ABV)
The Carmel is 100% Carignan sourced from a 44-year-old vineyard near the winery. It has fresh floral and strawberry aromas and a welcoming palate of red grapefruit. (11.7% ABV)
All three wines are priced at 79 shekels a bottle and carry the 100% Vegan authorization.
