The vineyard: The grapes come from the winery's top Merlot vineyard inManara in the Upper Galilee. The wine aged in French oak barrels for approximately 18 months and goes through rough filtration before bottling.
Production: The grapes were selectively handpicked in the early hours of the morning and delivered immediately to the winery, where they were cold macerated for 4 days for maximum flavor and color extraction. After undergoing slow and controlled fermentation the wine was gently pressed and transferred to mainly French oak and some Hungarian barrels for 16 months of aging that determined the wine's structure and contributed to its complexity and refinement.
