Alma Ivory is our own proprietary Galilee blend. This wine is a snapshot of a point in time in the Galilee region. The wine represents the Terroir of the Upper Galilee, the quality of the Dalton Winery Vineyards and is as close to a fingerprint as you can get. This is an eclectic blend and a complex wine that does not copy or imitate anything else. This wine is the Galilee, made from local Israeli grapes we grow at Dalton.
The grapes for this wine came from three separate vineyards that were picked and fermented separately. Once fermentation was completed the wines were blended and allowed to age in French oak barrels for 6 months. The final blend is 74%Semillon, 14% Pinot Gris and 12% Viognier.
This wine goes particularly well with fish dishes cooked or raw, chicken or dairy dishes such as pasta with a truffle sauce or onion tart.
Alma Ivory is a translucent and delicate wine; it has notes of apricots and honey on the nose. It is medium bodied with a long refreshing finish.
All Dalton wines are strictly Kosher Le Mehadrin and Kosher for Passover. They are under the supervision of the Merom Galil Rabbinate, Rabbi Yoseph Mishalil; Beit Din Yoreh Deya, Rabbi Shlomo Machpud; Rabbi Mordechai Ungar of Monsey New York and the Orthodox Union (OU).
