Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
The Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 is the first wine produced by Yitzhak Cohen, and its success was the main catalyst in establishing the Ramot Naftaly Winery. This pioneering wine was the first of many award-winners to be produced by the winery, when it took the gold medal at the Terravino competition in 2007.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from vineyard grapes grown in Kedesh Valley, atop the Naftaly Mountains in the Upper Galilee. The unique location of the vineyard is highly beneficial in the winemaking process. The rich and fertile soil and special climate conditions of the area give the grapes their color, flavor and characteristics, each of which is perfect for producing the finest wine. In this particular wine, the yield was low and its quality reflected all of its characteristics. The wine was barrel-aged in new French oak for a period of 18 months, and went through natural clarification processes, without filtration.
- Terravino 2007 – Gold
The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in August at 25 Brix. The grapes had reached excellent ripeness and phenolic maturity. Two days after immersion in low temperatures, the grapes were transferred for fermentation, which lasted for 20 days in varying temperatures of up to 28 degrees Celsius. Full Malolactic fermentation was then carried out before the wine was transferred to barrel-age in a combination 1-2 year and 3-4 year old Seguin Moreau French oak.
