To create these wines the winemakers choose grapes from the best Israeli vineyards and terroirs. Fermented and aged separately in top quality barrels, Reserve Label wines undergo additional aging in the cellars before being released.
Grapes for this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon are grown high in the slopes of Northern Galilee, where the rocky, porous soil and a cool sea breeze nurture this noble varietal.
Grapes are harvested by hand from late September through mid-October. Immediately following the crush, the must is chilled to 60ºF en route to the fermentation vats.
