The Galil Mountain Winery has another winner. This Rosé made from four grape varieties, including 75% Sangiovese, 13% Barbera, 10% Pinot Noir and 2% Syrah. Perhaps this accounts for its complex aromas and tastes of roses, strawberries, vanilla, butter, and honey. It is smooth, light and airy without any bitterness or bite. It even has a pleasant lingering aftertaste. When cooled in the refrigerator, it is the perfect refreshing hot weather wine. We drank it tonight with our dinner of pinto beans, squash, mashed potatoes and a modification of our curried quinoa recipe which included fresh apricots picked earlier today from our tree. This wine was the perfect accompaniment of out vegetarian dinner.
This wine deserves an israelwinetaster grade of A+ and has an unbeatable QPR, or Quality Price Ratio. That is, especially when you factor in the price of 40 shekels (approximately $10.50 at the current exchange rate). And now there is a special sale price at the winery — if you buy two bottles, the price is 35 shekels/bottle making this a less than $10 wine.
