Rimon Dry Wine

Winery Story

"In the heart of the Galilee Mountains of Israel, nestled in the seductive curves of rolling hills, is a place where time seems to stand sti... (more...)ll. For thousands of years this land has produced the legendary agricultural riches of the Holy Land. Today, the fullest expression of this history is a breathtaking pomegranate orchard and the pure pomegranate wines of Rimon Winery. Named for the Hebrew word for pomegranate, the winery is the first to successfully produce fine wine made from 100% pomegranate—without added sugar. Rimon Winery sits on a basalt plateau nearly 3,000 feet above sea level, nestled in the heart of the Nachmias family’s pomegranate orchard. The building has been crafted from local stone to blend into the timeless hills above the Sea of Galilee. Hidden behind the stone walls is a state-of-the art winemaking facility featuring special pomegranate separation and pressing equipment, stainless steel fermentation tanks, and a barrel room where the wines are aged in classic French oak barrels."

Tasting Note

Made using traditional dry-wine-producing methods, the fruit for this wine is harvested at the peak of ripeness, crushed for its sweet juice... (more...)s, fermented at low temperatures to preserve the fruit flavors, and then aged in French oak barrels for nine months.It is an elegant wine with a beautiful deep reddish-purple color and a unique bouquet of rich pomegranate and floral aromas. It has flavors of cherries with a faint hint of black peppers and a well-balanced, soft finish.
