Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
The Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 was produced in the second and final year in which wines were produced as part of the experimental pilot project of the small winery.
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 20 months, and went through natural clarification processes, without filtration.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in August at 25 Brix. The grapes reached excellent ripeness and phenolic maturity. Two days of immersion in low temperatures, 20 days of alcoholic fermentation and full Malolactic fermentation are carried out before the wine is transferred to barrel-age in French oak.
