Kosher Wine Recommendations for the Jewish New Year, 2012
Considered a holy beverage in the Jewish faith, wine plays an important part in many ceremonies, however the increasingly high quality in the production of kosher wine has garnered an increasing popularity in non-kosher consumers trying it out too.
Whether you’ve tried kosher wine before or are a complete wine novice, with Rosh Hashana – the Jewish New Year – starting this Sunday 16th September 2012, what better time to try something new?
So what to try and where to buy? Take a look at these kosher wine recommendations from some of our wine-loving friends in New York:
WineWeaver Friends: Recommended Kosher Wine Tips
Barkan Altitude Series 624 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Having been whole-heartedly recommended, this CabSav is dark purple-red in color with deep, ripe, berry fruit tones interlaced with sweeter spices like cinnamon and vanilla. The tannins in the wine are fairly pronounced, which benefits from a pour through a wine aerator or into a decanter beforehand.
At once powerful, complex and delicious this wine lingers in the mouth and complements both seasoned chicken and red meat.
Bravdo Merlot 2010
This Merlot is a full-bodied red wine with an impressive aroma of berries and dark summer fruit, encased with silky soft tannins.
Having been aged for 12 months in oak barrels, mostly French and some American this is a top rated wine to please a sophisticated palate.
Weinstock Cellar Select Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009.
Displaying a balanced oaky bouquet with delightful blackberry, black cherry and tobacco aromas, this wine was aged for 18 months in new and one-year old French and American oak barrels giving it a wonderfully smooth mouth feel and rich yet soft tannins especially upon aeration.
