The 2007 harvest brought with it new flavors and wine vintages, among them the Shiraz, which made an impressive debut when it won the winery’s first award at the Fingerlake competition in the U.S., in 2007.
The Shiraz grapes are grown in Kedesh Valley, an area where the weather conditions, particularly strong sun during the day and cold at night, are suitable for the grapes’ development. These conditions are also responsible for the grape’s deep purple color and light aromas. The grapes were harvested by hand and the wine was barrel-aged in French oak for 10 months. The wine features the light aroma of dried fruits with raspberry and tobacco flavors, scented with the roasted oak. The wine’s flavor develops up to an hour after the bottle is opened. The wine is balanced and leaves a long flavor finish.
