Varietals: e Merlot Reserve is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc sourced from our best of plots in the Dishon vineyard (Upper Galilee).

The grapes were carefully selected and hand-harvested in early morning hours from low yielding vines.

Vinification: At the winery the grapes are destemmed then cold macerated for 48 hours. the fermentation takes places in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks at 25-26 degrees for 14 days with regular remontage to help extract colour, aromas and varietal character. The wine is then pressed, le- to clarify naturally and moved to our cellars for ageing.

Maturation: The wine aged in French oak barrels of which 30% are new at the rest one to two years old.Each varietal ages separately for 12 months, after which the final blend takes place. After bottling the wine is aged for an additional 10 months in our cellars.

Ageing Potential: Drinks well now but will improve over the next 8 to 10 years.
