Raisin wine.

SO O Ch 272 (6) quotes the Tur to say

יין צמוקים מקדשים עליו (והוא שיש בהן לחלוחית קצת בלא שרייה) (טור):

Kiddush may be recited over raisin wine (provided some moisture can be squeezed from them before they are steeped in water) (Tur).

The raisins that I see do not yield moisture on squeezing.

What are the best raisins to use for making raisin wine over which to make kiddush?

  • I think not the seedless ones.

  • Sultanas are not recommended because they are often dipped in oil, which will tend to float on the surface of the wine and impart undesirable flavors.
