Estate Petite Sirah
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.
Petite Sirah is the result of cooperation between winemaker and grower who together shaped a young vineyard to produce this fine wine. This vineyard is located on the costal-plain close to Gedera not far from the town of Rehovot. We have been working with the vineyard over the past few years and fine-tuning the viticulture every year.
The grapes were selectively picked in mid-September. During fermentation the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction in the gentlest way possible. On completing fermentation, the wine was pressed out and racked into new French and American barrels where it was matured for 12 months.
This wine goes particularly well with heavy meat dishes such as steak or lamb chops or hearty winter stews.
Petite Sirah is a dark rich wine, the nose is richly aromatic with notes of lavender, black olives and notes of old world complexity. The wine is creamy and velvety on the palate, with soft tannins and a long finish.
