Region: Upper Galilee
Variety: 51% Syrah, 46% Barbera, 3% Petit Verdot
Style: With a velvety texture, the wine presents aromas of black cherry, fresh blueberry and plum jam, and background characters of cloves, coffee and browned butter. Deep purple in color with delicate and balanced acidity, the full-bodied wine has a long-lasting finish.
Technical Data: The wine underwent 10-20 days of fermentation on skins at 28°C (82°F), full malolactic fermentation, and 12 months of aging in French oak barrels.
Harvest: Following a rainy winter, the 2013 harvest season was characterized by relatively mild weather, enabling optimal vine growth and outstanding grape quality. The harvest’s unique climatic conditions led to uniform ripening in the vineyards, leading to most of the harvested fruit arriving at the winery in September. The quality of this harves appears to be very high.
