Region: The higher elevations of the Upper Galilee, the northern part
of the Galilee viticultural area.
Style: Delicate characters of blossom, ripe apricot and nectarine
with touches of tropical fruit. A balanced wine with refreshing
acidity and a long, pleasurable finish.
Data: The highly selected grapes were gently crushed in full
clusters immediately after arriving at the winery. At the end
of the 24-48-hour settling, the wine was fermented at
temperatures of 8°-16°C (46-61°F). At the end of
fermentation, the wine was separated from its sediments,
and settled in stainless steel vats on light yeast lees.
Harvest: The growing season that preceded the 2012 harvest began
with a cold, rainy winter that led to deep hibernation of the
vines, and satisfied the need for cold conditions that are
essential for growing quality grapes. The cold winter led to
a relatively late arousal of the vines, but a hot spring
accelerated their development enabling the harvest to
begin in August as in average years. The season's climate
was characterized by comfortable temperatures enabling
optimal vineyard growth and high quality grapes.
