Dalton wines share a common place and culture. Brought to you by the people of Dalton Winery, each of these wines was created with the utmost respect for our vineyards and the natural flavor of their fruits. We strive for sustainability throughout our vineyards, and minimize intervention during the entire winemaking processes, ensuring that the wine you taste is fruity and soft, as should be.
After all, wine is all about pleasure. Make this moment yours. Pause for pleasure.
Once again Dalton is pioneering the use of Mediterranean varieties in its release of a single varietal Grenache wine. The grapes for this wine come from our vineyards in Even Menachem in the western galilee. The vineyard sits at 600m on a soil of lime stone and terra rossa.
The grapes were harvested during the last days of August, and the wine was fermented in concrete tanks, the cap was punched down physically by hand during fermentation. The wine was then aged for 12 months in second use french barrels.
A good Grenache such as this can be drunk with a light meal of fish or meat.

The wine is a deep ruby colour, very spicy, think black pepper, on the nose with clear cherry and strawberry aromas. On the palate, the wine is fresh and lively with a crisp tutti-frutti finish.
