Tradition is the key word to describe this rare wine, elaborated exclusively from grapes growing on the Judean Mountains, at high altitude (950m). We faithfully uphold the custom of hand picking during the harvest and a long and warm fermentation in small open vats. Aged 24 months in French oak barrels this powerful and rich wine presents a deep colour, intense with hints of spices.
Our Judean Hills Hevron Chateau's flagship product. It exudes the ripe black plums, blackberry jam aroma. The concentration is tremendously high, also with bursts of the tea, earthy minerals sensations. A simile would likely to describe it as “the refreshing feeling into the forest after the rain”, followed by endless roses fragrance, and surging black pepper aroma. Abundant tannins at the entrance with obvious acidity and thus makes the wine very rich with burst out of endless taste of coffee and chocolate in the mouth.
Additionally, the mineral-like salty taste can be felt in the ending note, as if “exposure to the Dead Sea”, plus an extremely lingering smoky taste, and a trace of silky dried prunes in which its acidity is tightly knotted.
The overall levels of layers are described to be of highest “aristocrat” quality, and indeed all various layers are promised to be rich and ultimate enjoyments.
It is recommended to pre-open the bottle for 12 hours to breathe properly before any tasting of this wine in order to reach its profound levels, as if “all resplendent roses in their full bloom.”
