COAST TO COAST
Asufa is our winemaker Guy Eshel’s personal playground at Dalton Winery; A series of moments and memories gathered throughout his time in the field, brought to life together here at Dalton. Each wine in this series tells a different story – some of the here and now, others of a time and place elsewhere – but all were made to add color and complexity to your dining experiences.
85% Zinfandel, 10% Shiraz, 5% Petite Sirah
Safsufa Vineyard Merom Galil.
The grapes were selectively picked in early September. During fermentation, the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction of the wine in the gentlest way possible. Once dry (fully fermented) the wine was pressed out and racked into new American barrels where it was aged for one year.
Coast to Coast is a spicy wine, the nose is rich with currants, berries and plums spiced with cinnamon cloves and vanilla from the barrel. The wine is medium bodied with sweet fruit and soft tannins.
This wine goes particularly well with heavy meat dishes such as steak or lamb chops or hearty winter stews.
