A dark, concentrated Shiraz, this wine is Kosher for Passover and all year round.
The grapes, from the Galilee region, that make the Dalton Shiraz immediately, within minutes from picking, are crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. While fermenting for ten days, the juice from the grapes mixes with the skins often, allowing for a large amount of color retention from the grapes. The wine is then pressed and placed in new American oak barrels and aged for roughly one year.
Dalton Shiraz, presenting itself in a dark, almost black, color, is very concentrated with a long aging potential. It contains black fruit, plum, berry, black licorice, and pepper tones, combined with subtle tannins, and leaves a long finish. Dalton suggests the wine be served with steak or lamb. The wine is also perfect for a small gathering, coupled with a cheese plate, or on its own.
Suggested serving temperature is 61 – 64 degrees F.
