Rimon Pomegranate Dessert Wine
Big Fruit, Pow!

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

This is a sweet, yet light wine, with fruity aromas and bright cherry flavors. Notes of chocolate and lush pomegranate flavors linger on the... (more...) finish. It can be served alone or paired with desserts and soft, ripe cheeses. Serve chilled at about 55 - 62° F. "

Last glas of the Rimon; perfectly paired with FRAICHE natural yogurt/mochi/blueberries/wildflower honey. Even more wine-like, less pomegranate-esque as the days have gone by. A very tasty dessert wine.

Tasty, super-pomegranaty, juicy, intense, dark black cherry colored vino. "Wow" of a way to end the day.

Delicious. Just like biting in to a pomegranate. Fresh, tangy and crisp.
