Yatir Winery is proud to launch its new wine as winter turns to spring. Yatir Rose 2015.
Yatir Rose is based on grapes particularly suited to this kind of wine (Grenache Noir and Tempranillo), grown expressly for this purpose. This Rose is dry, crisp, low alcoholic content, with a delicate rose hue, fresh taste and aroma, fruity and perfumed. This is a very drinkable and satisfying wine which nonetheless maintains highest quality. It is especially suited to being enjoyed young and on its own, or as a accompaniment to Mediterranean cuisine.
Yatir Rose 2015 blends 93% Grenache with 7% Tempranillo from two different vineyards in the Yatir Forest, located 780 and 680 meters respectively above sea level. The grapes are harvested early to assure the wine’s vitality. The Tempranillo harvest is crushed immediately on arrival at the winery, whereas the Grenache grapes are steeped in their skins for 24 hours in a stainless steel vat and then crushed. For the winemaking, only the free flowing must (new wine) is used, and fermented at a low temperature in steel vats. With fermentation complete, the wine is allowed to rest in steel vats until bottling, which took place in February 2016.
Tasting – Yatir Rose 2015 has a light rose-peach hue, and a perfume reminiscent of tropical fruit, peachy and floral, a particularly fruit taste, dry and refreshing.
