Winemaker's Notes

This crispy, fruity Sauvignon is made from grapes grown in a single vineyard in the Upper Galilee and hand-harvested during September, 2008. The grapes were brought to the winery in the early hours of the morning and were immediately crushed and chilled. The wine then underwent a slow cold fermentation. This process contributes to retaining the unique fruitiness and aroma inherent in this variety.

The wine's aroma is one of grapefruit and tropical fruits with shades of passion fruit, and green apple.
