Cabernet Sauvignon Kerem Elkosh

Single Vineyard

Each wine in our Single Vineyard series encapsulates the nature of a site specific microcosmos: a soil, its landscape and the climate that shapes them. Elkosh is our parcel in the heart of the Galilee, where buttercups dance on ammonite and chalky soil dot ted black flint rocks and ancient fossils. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes here grow lush, dark and vibrant.

Serving temperature



The Elkosh Vineyard is close to Moshav Elkosh and descends towards Nahal Matat. The site at 720 meters is bounded by Mount Biranit to the north Fasuta and Mount Tzonam to the west and Mount Matat to the east. The Elkosh Vineyard was planted in 2009. The logo on the label represents an ammonite fossil, as so many were found during the preparation of the vineyard site.


The grapes were picked in the last 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 for 18 months in French Oak, and only the finest barrels were selected to make this wine. The wine was only coarse filtered before bottling.
