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.
100% Chenin Blanc
The wine was made in two stages. Half of the grapes were pressed as whole bunches and the clear juice feremented in barrels . The other half was processed in the traditional method and allowed to sit on skins for a while berfore ferement. The wines were femented both in barrels and steel tanks, natural fementations in both. The wine was then allowed to mature 6 months in barrel on light lees.
The wine is a full bodied white wine with aromas of guyava and tropical fruit. It is soft on the palate with a long velvety vanilla finish.
This wine can be enjoyed with grilled fish and chicken, or alternatively Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
