The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested from each vineyard separately during the night at the optimal time for harvest, and arrived at the winery in the early hours of the morning.
Following a gentle crush, the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were transferred into a chilled stainless-steel tank for cold soaking prior to the alcoholic fermentation. Upon completion of the cold soaking, the alcoholic fermentation process began at a temperature of 28°C, while applying different pump-over regimes for the extraction of colors, flavors and aromas. Following the alcoholic fermentation the wine was soaked on the skins for 8 days. Upon completion of the extended maceration, the grapes were slowly pressed with low pressures into a stainless-steel tank for the malolactic fermentation which stabilizes and softens the wine.
Following the malolactic fermentation, the wine started the 18-months maturation process in new French oak wooden barrels. This process is done separately for each of the vineyards. Throughout the maturation process, all barrels were tasted, and the final blend was composed in order to reflect just the right composition from both of the vineyards in the final wine. Following the maturation process, the wine was bottled and continued to mature for 10 additional months before release.
