Produced at Hevron Heights Winery in Hevron, this wine is a worthy tribute to our forebear. The grapes for this Reserve wine wore grown at high elevation, 950 metres, in the heart of the Judean Mountains, aged 24 months in the finest French Oak Barrels.
Abundance of forest black berries and fragrance, with a strong refreshing forest freshness. A simile as follows, “as if a couple are meandering in the forest rain surrounded by all greens”. The entrance is appreciated with a strong mouthful tannin experience, acidity is smooth and supple. Followed by French oak-barrel creamy style and outstanding spices. The ending is manifested by the “feeling of mellow after tasting” lingers in the mouth with tremendous layers and transformation. It is best suggested to breathe it with 6 to 8 hours before drinking.
