Our Cabernet Reserve is a blend of
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot
4% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc sourced from our best plots in
the Dishon, Ben-Zimra (Upper Galilee). The grapes were
carefully selected and hand-harvested in early morning
hours from low yielding vines
At the winery the grapes are sorted,
destemmed and then crushed. The fermentation takes places
in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks at 26-28
degrees for 15 days with regular remontage in order
to extract colour, aromas and varietal character.
The wine is then pressed, left to clarify naturally and moved
to our cellars for ageing.
The wine ages in French oak barrels of which
50% are new and 50% one to two years old. Each varietal
ages separately for 14 months, after which the final blend
takes place. After bottling the wine is aged for an additional
10 months in our cellars.
Drinks well now but will improve over
the next 10 to 15 years
