Raspberry and blackberry jam characterize the Alexander Merlot, along with nuances of orange peel, chocolate, oak and vanilla. The attractive aroma and flavor couple with a medium body and tasty finish to complete this elegant wine. One can enjoy Alexander Merlot immediately or, if stored well, up to about six years following the harvest. We like to drink Alexander Merot with a variety of foods, from moussaka to pasta putanesca to grilled lamb chops.
Alexander winery was founded by winemaker Yoram Shalom in Tel-Aviv in 1996, and was relocated to Beit Yitzhak, a Moshav in Hefer Valley. The winery began as a small family venture but slowly grew into a very successful, highly acclaimed boutique winery. Since the 2006 vintage the winery products are Kosher and in 2007 the wines are also Kosher under the supervision of the “Beit Joseph” organization.
