Wine maker notes
The grapes come to the winery in the early morning and transferred from the crusher into refrigerated stainless steel tanks. After a short maceration of keeping the grape juice on its lees, during which the must received a purple hue, the fresh grape juice was separated and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, in order to preserve the fresh fruit flavors. After the fermentation, the wine was aged in European oak barrels for 10 months. After this period the final blend was conceived emphasizing the velvetiness of the Merlot.

Food pairing
Pasta Bolognese, chicken breast or beef stews.

Producer
In 1848, Rabbi Mordechai Avraham Shor, head of Tifereth Israel Yeshiva, and his son, Rabbi Yitzchak Shor, established a winery to serve the growing Ashkanazi population in Jerusalem. The western wall of the winery was formed by a part of the Wailing Wall. Rabbi Yitzchak warned people against touching the wall, and placed wine barrels along the wall to protect it. In 1925, the winery was moved out of the Old City, into the Bet Israel neighborhood. in 1982, the business was transferred to Mishor Adumim, where Zvika Shor is now the current winemaker, continuing the tradition from father to son, father to son.
