Region: Upper Galilee

Variety: 100% Grenache

 

Style: Bright purple in colour, this particularly dry wine displays characters of rich red fruit, alongside aromas of spice and earth. A delicate wine with a velvety texture, balanced acidity, and a long finish. The wine goes well with a range of dishes, and provides a light and pleasant drinking experience

 

Technical Data: The wine underwent 7 days of fermentation on skins at 26oC (79oF), full malolactic fermentation, and about 12 months of aging in French oak barrels

 

Harvest: The growing season preceding the harvest began with a rainy winter, and the grapevines reawakened to moist ground and good growth conditions. The spring began earlier than usual, which led to early maturity in most of the plots. The beginning of the spring was characterized by vigorous grapevine growth, which placed pressure on the winegrowers to complete their tasks on time. Throughout the season, the weather was moderate with no extreme events, and the fruit’s ripening was uniform and moderate. The 2016 harvest was the Winery’s shortest ever, ending within eight weeks. The vintage shows signs of very high quality
