Planted in the year 2000 the Meron vineyard has consistently proven itself to be exceptional. The wine made from this site is most singular in character and of exceptional quality. The logo on the label represents a eucalyptus leaf, which expresses the essence of the wine. This 7 hectare vineyard is at an altitude of 750m located on the border of the Mt. Meron Nature reserve and bounded by eucalyptus trees. This wine comes from a block of less than a hectare on the western corner of the vineyard.
The grapes were picked in the early week of September. During fermentation the grape cap was pumped-over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction of the wine. After the wine was pressed out, and the free run wine was separated and used to make this wine. The wine was aged in French-oak barrels for eighteen months.
This wine goes particularly well with heavy meat dishes such as steak or lamb chops or hearty winter stews.
It is the extraordinary eucalyptus and mint qualities that make this wine so special, along with a soft velvety texture soft smooth tannins and a long fruity finish.
