The nose is generous and perfumed,
with fresh fruit notes, a soft herbaceous note and a hint of
soft oak spices. Rich and elegant the wine an impressive fruit
concentration, complex oak spices notes, good and wellrounded
tannins all balanced by fresh mineral acidity. The
finish is long.
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
- A complex and rich wine, a result of strict growing methods and extremely low yields. Complex, elegant and intense, our Merlot Reserve is fruit driven, complimented by soft oak spices, floral notes, all leading to a long and velvety finish.
- "Merlot grapes have a delicate soul. It is only in the upper Galilee's that I manage growing them to full maturity while keeping the fine balance between sugar and acidity. This results in a wine that drinks well now but will age gracefully" - Golan Flam
47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc,
16% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 7% Syrah.
The five grape varieties were cultivated in the Mata
vineyard in the Judaean Mountains. The vineyard
lies 650 meters above sea level and is known for
extreme day and night temperature change. This
environment allows the grapes to mature on the vine
without losing their fresh notes.
The grapes were harvested at night, selected and
hand-picked to maintain perfect fruit cleanliness.
