Winemaking Process

Upon arrival at the winery, the Carignan grapes are promptly pressed to extract the free-run juice, and the Malbec grapes are placed in a tank from which a small amount of juice is bled after brief skin contact. The time on skins is just enough to give the wine a vivid pale pink tint and extract its red fruit flavor. After natural clarification of the must, the wine is transferred for a slow alcoholic fermentation at low temperatures similar to the process used for white wine in order to preserve its inherent delicate aromas. The wine is then transferred for brief storage in stainless steel tanks until selection of the final varietal blend. The wine is bottled after filtration and is released to the market after a brief period of aging in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

Yogev Malbec Carignan is an aromatic and refreshing wine that is well suited to Israel’s sizzling summers. Never forsaking its red grape origins, its nose carries refreshing red fruit such as strawberries and raspberries with delicate herbal notes. The palate is refreshing with a fine acidity, balanced by an innate sweet fruit aroma. With most rosé wines, drinking them young with no more than one to two years of aging is recommended, and this rosé is no different. For years, rosé wines have been regarded with slight suspicion, but they have recently have earned the status of highly enjoyable wines; satisfying on their own or as a classic accompaniment to a hearty meal.
