Rosé du Castel is a blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, harvested before reaching phenolic maturity. The light color testifies to the rapid pressing and the short contact time that the new wine had with the grape skins. The fermentation period is long, under cold temperatures, resulting in a light and refreshing yet prominent wine. The rosé has an aroma of tropical fruit, peach and rose, and continues in flavors of lychee, lime, grapefruit and peach. The recommended serving temperature is 8 degrees Celsius. All wines from Domaine du Castel are kosher under Badatz Beit Yosef hechsher.
The archaeological evidence found in almost every corner of the country leaves no doubt: grapes grew and wine was made here on the grounds of Domaine du Castel. Historical sources reveal that the Judean region was considered the pinnacle of wine country ("Judah, your brothers will praise you," Genesis 49). From the very beginning, up to the present day, Castel continues to plant these vineyards, cultivate the soils and study the unique terroir with a vision of quality as their guide. All these vineyards are located in the Judean Hills, within a 4.5 km radius from the wine estate, at an average elevation of about 750 meters above sea level.
