The Winemaker Edition series comprises red and white wines blended from special varieties of grapes, each grown and harvested along the slopes of the vineyard’s unique plateau. To create the perfect balance, each variety is planted and harvested at individual times, adhering to the specific attributes and requirements of every type of grape. The Winemaker Edition series is created annually by Adir Winery’s expert winemaker, taking advantage of each season’s harvest to create the perfect blend. This individualistic approach ensures that the distinct taste of the Winemaker Edition is achieved, serving as a select wine created exclusively at Adir Winery.
The manually harvested clusters are always hand selected, ensuring that only the highest quality grapes are chosen and incorporated into the wines. Following harvest, the grapes then undergo a light pressing to maintain the quality of the free-run juice. A special yeast solution for slow and cold fermentation allows for full extraction to achieve maximum potential which, combined with the optimal alcohol content, enhances the taste of the fruit.
These unique blends have a rich bouquet of tastes and can be enjoyed on their own or alongside a meal. They present a wide variety of flavors, and easily complement food without overburdening. The Winemaker Edition is a signature Adir wine, uniquely produced and savored by all, all year round.
The grapes used in this series of dessert wine are the fruit of a unique growth method, and are hand-harvested late in the season.
On arrival at the winery each cluster is carefully selected, the fruit is separated from the stalk and the juice undergoes partial fermentation until the desired level of sweetness is achieved. The addition of alcohol stops the fermentation and the wine is aged in oak barrels for a period of 30-36 months – outdoors – where the temperature in the barrel changes dramatically between seasons.
This series has two wines: Plot 98, Plot 98 Blush
Plato is produced solely in the years when the harvest reaches the utmost standards of excellence. Grapes intended for this exceptional series undergo a stringent process of selection and production.
Following harvest, clusters are hand selected to ensure that only the highest quality are chosen. After crushing, a 72-hour cold-soak, and careful fermentation, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels where it is aged for 24 months. These wines undergo an additional 8 to 12 month aging period in bottles.
Plato has received prestigious awards and international recognition. It is a sophisticated and multi-faceted robust wine, incorporating a perfect balance between a wide range of aromas and flavors.
