Winemaker Notes

The vineyards at the foot of Mount Meron in the Upper Galilee are planted at an average height of 760 meters above sea level. The grapes were harvested from several plots on the northern slopes of the mountain, which are characterized by "hardening vines". These unique conditions, combined with a few cultivation and irrigation methods, enabled the grape to yield high quality grapes. The grapes were harvested with selective manual harvest and when they reached the nearby winery they were carefully selected and underwent controlled fermentation. The maximum accuracy resulted in excellent extraction. This wine is a blend of 4 noble varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. 20 months of aging in oak barrels Keep the original fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of blackberry, fennel bulb and smoke set the scene for flavors of cherry, raspberry, chocolate and tobacco leaf. Mellow but ever-apparent tannins ply the palate alongside a strong bolt of acidity that tapers off into a pomegranate-imbued finish.

Or Haganuz Winery, Israel
High quality wine is always the result of excellent ingredients. Or Haganuz wines are based on grapes grown in prominent vineyards in the area of Or Haganuz, Mount Meron and Dalton. The vineyards enjoy the unique northern Galilee climate at heights ranging from 780 to 870 meters (2400 - 2500 feet) above sea level, which is optimal for high quality grapes. These vineyards grow in plots rich with history that can be tracedback hundreds of years. Or Haganuz Winery was founded in 2005 at the foot of Mount Meron, and it strives to produce high quality wines with a true “boutique” feeling. Grapes are strictly selected from among the senior vineyards separately for each series. The harmony between the soil and the different wines transforms the entire production into a much more personal process. The unique blends combine high quality vineyards and the special terroir of the Mount Meron region is one to give Or Haganuz wines the rich aromas and flavors that characterize them.

With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde River, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

Tasting Notes for Bordeaux Blends

Bordeaux Blends are dry, red wines and generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry plum, graphite, cedar and violet. Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines, modeled after the Right Bank, are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure.

Perfect Food Pairings for Bordeaux Blends

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secrets for Bordeaux Blends

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties in specified percentages, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, for example. Occassionally a winemaker might add a small percentage of a non-Bordeaux variety, such as Syrah or Petite Sirah for a desired result.
