Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2007
The 2007 vintage was characterized by unique climate conditions for the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Kedesh Valley, which reached vintage stature with a balanced ripeness. The ripening progression and the increase in sugar made the grapes particularly ideal for winemaking.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from vineyard grapes grown in Kedesh Valley, surrounded by 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 25 months, and went through natural clarification processes, without filtration. The wine’s color is a shade of red-purple, whilst its flavor is intense, remaining on the palate after swallowing.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested at the beginning of September, at approximately 26 Brix. The must and skins of the grapes were immersed in fermentation tanks for 48 hours at varied temperatures, in order to draw more of the skins’ color and aroma, prior to the alcoholic fermentation. The wine was barrel-aged in a combination new, 2-year-old and 4-year-old French oak. Once every six months the wine was taken out and placed in a large stainless steel tank, in order to fuse all the barreled wines into one homogenous blend.
