This wine was produced from 85% Cabernet Franc grown in the Mata vineyards near Jerusalem, and 15% Merlot.
The grapes went through alcoholic fermentation for some two weeks and rested atop the grape skins for an additional number of days. The grapes were only lightly pressed before being transferred to barrels for ageing. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes were fermented and aged in separate barrels. After a period of six months in the barrels, during which the wines’ flavours stabilized, the final blend was determined in order to receive complexity and harmony. After creating the final blend, the wine was returned to the barrels to age for an additional nine months. The wine aged in 80% French oak barrels and 20% American oak barrels. Alcohol content: 13.0%
This wine has a very deep maroon red colour and pomegranate edges. The wine is full-bodied with a festive aroma of purple flowers, grass, green pepper, ripe red and black fruit and a bit of toasted wood.
Its flavour is at once robust and round, invigorating and fruity. The tannins are gentle and piquant, with a long finish that is full of life.
