Mevushal (Cooked Wine)
- There is a debate among the poskim whether pasteurized wine has the status of cooked wine in Halacha.
- Mishna Brachot 35a, Shulchan Aruch 202:1, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 49:1
- Minchat Shlomo (Siman 4)
- Rav Moshe Feinstein (Sh"T Iggerot Moshe YD 2:52) held that pasteurized wine is considered cooked and therefore is permitted even if it was touched by a non-Jew or a Jew who publicly desecrates Shabbos. However, according to Rav Elyashiv (Kovetz Teshuvos 1:pg. 112) and Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (Minchas Shlomo 25) pasteurized wine is not considered cooked in halacha in regards to being touched by a non-Jew. Chacham Ovadia Yosef (Sh"t Yabea Omer YD 8:15) writes that if necessary one can rely on the opinion of Rav Moshe Feinstein
