Kosher Wine Review

Wine Options for Passover

Kosher Wine ReviewFinding the right wine for the occasion can be difficult on a day to day basis, and that’s for everyone. If you’re looking for a good quality wine, and it has to be Kosher – your job got that much harder. There’s a lot of misconceptions about the flavor of Kosher wines, and you may not even know where to start looking for a bottle to bring to your next event or even to enjoy for Passover. The Royal Wine Corporation has several different Kosher wines, and sent me a selection to try out and share about with you.

SHILOH Legend ReviewSHILOH Legend – Red 

SHILOH Legend is a red wine from Isreal. While Shiloh is a red, it’s actually a blend of four different wines, the blend consists of Shiraz (45%) – Petite Syrah (40%) – Petite Verdot (9%) – Merlot (6%). After the four wines are combined, it is then aged together in a oak barrel for an additional 8 months.

Shiloh provides a full body taste with fruity and mint and spice under body.
