Discover Sweet/Dessert Red Wine Wines
Dessert wines, sometimes known as pudding wines in the UK, are sweet wines that are frequently eaten with dessert. A dessert wine does not have a clear definition. In the United States, a dessert wine is defined as any wine with an alcohol content of more than 14% by volume, which includes all fortified wines—and as a result, it is taxed more heavily. This is from a time when fortification was the only way to make dessert wines in the United States, however such a categorization is no longer valid since that contemporary yeast and viticulture can produce dry wines with alcohol levels of above 15% without fortification (and German dessert wines can contain half that amount of alcohol).
About the Producer: Carmel Winery
Carmel Winery is a historic Israeli wine producer founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild of Château Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac. It is Israel's largest producer and one of the largest in the eastern Mediterranean, producing over 15 million bottles of wine a year. All Carmel wines are kosher. The estate's vineyards stretch from Upper Galilee in the north to the Negev in the south, covering a total of about 1,400 hectares (3,470 acres) of land. Carmel cultivates a wide variety of varieties, from red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Shiraz and Merlot to white varieties like Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The grapes, destined for the production of the greatest wines on the property, come mainly from the Shomron wine region, while the only vineyard and prestigious wines are made mainly with fruits from Upper Galilee. Carmel has several wineries across the country. The first of these, the Rishon LeZion winery and the Zichron Ya'akov wineries, were built by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1890 and 1892, respectively. The property's headquarters and main mixing and bottling facilities are located in Rishon LeZion, while the company's Wine Culture Center, with centuries-old cellars carved into the mountains, is located in Zichron Ya'akov. Carmel also owns and produces wines at the Cayumi Winery in Upper Galilee, which is the main source of wine from Carmel's selected vineyards. He also owns a 50 percent stake in the Yatir winery in northern Negev. The property's wine portfolio contains several collections, including Carmel Fine Wines, Carmel Ridge, Private Collection and Selected. Carmel's signature wine, Carmel Limited Edition, is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc from Upper Galilee. The wine ages in French oak barrels for 15 months before bottling. Carmel also produces cognac, mainly from Colombard.
