    3. Rosé du Castel, Domaine du Castel, Judean Hills Israel
    Kosher and Kosher for Passover
    Domaine du Castel is located 15 km west of Jerusalem, on land leased from the kibbutz.Eli Ben Zaken is one of the pioneers of modern Israeli viticulture. He planted several vines of cabernet sauvignon and merlot next to his home in the Judean Hills as an experiment in 1988 and achieved immediate international success with his first 1992 vintage. Classic Bordeaux and Burgundy are great examples. The altitude (700 mtr) regulates cooling and therefore the preservation of freshness in the grapes; the rainfall ( 700 ml) makes irrigation almost unnecessary. The most important quality factor, however, is the density at which the vines are planted. ( 6700 / ha , three times more than normal )
    Rosé du Castel is a blend of early picked merlot, malbec and cabernet franc that is quickly pressed, has short skin contact and ferments at low temperature. Light and fresh in flavor, but surprising with its red fruit and citrus. Very gastronomic. Testschrift June 2018: 9- Ripe fruit, tight, fairly dry, good balance, good filling, juicy, quirky, surprise, nice meal rosé (13.5% alc.).
    Pouring temperature: 8° C
    Serve with: Meats, white fish, tuna & swordfish, white meat, soft creamy cheese, chicken, vegetarian, spicy oriental, mullet with barigoule; piquillo peppers with stuffing of brandade
