Dry red wine




Winemaking Process

The grapes are harvested at night and transported to the winery close to dawn. At the winery the grapes undergo destemming and gentle crushing. Alcoholic fermentation begins at a temperature of 25°C, in order to preserve the grape aroma and create a well-balanced body for a wine that is enjoyable while young. The fermentation process lasts 5-7 days before being pressed and continues to the malolactic fermentation. The wine continues to age a little longer in the tanks with some oak contact, after which the blend is selected and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Binyamina Winery’s Prestige Shiraz is a rich wine with a beautiful purplish-ruby color. It is enjoyable as a young wine with an early emergence of black forest fruits, some spice and a smoky quality characteristic of this variety. The palate is tantalizing, soft and fruity and like other wines in the series, is best served when slightly chilled. With proper storage conditions, the wine will continue to age well for a short period of two to three years. But rather than trying to wait it out, pop it open and enjoy it while young.
