Winemaker's Notes

A limited edition, this superb choice wine is made from grapes grown in the Galilee and Golan regions at an elevation of around 800 metres above sea level. The temperature is relatively warm during the day and cool at night. The result is mature grapes with ideal balance between flavour, colour, tannins, sugar content, total acidity and pH.

The grapes were harvested and transferred at night to the winery where they were immediately crushed and de-stemmed. The mash was fermented in rotating vinifiers to obtain intensity in colour. After malolactic fermentation the wine was racked, and then allowed to mature in 225 litre French oak barrels for approximately 12 months. The wine was filtered, bottled and laid down in cool underground cellars before finally being released for distribution.

Tasting Notes A superior wood aged Cabernet Sauvignon with a good red colour, oak and vanilla bouquet; dark, spicy and berry flavours that last on the finish.
