Family Collection – Sauvignon Blanc
The Family Collection came together in celebration of our winery’s 30th anniversary. A series of wines offering you the very best quality and most timeless bottles made with endless dedication and love. This is our family’s legacy in the Galilee.
The grapes were picked in two lots (the first before the fruit had fully ripened in order to capture the aromatic nature of the Sauvignon Blanc and the second to bolster the sugar content) at the beginning of August. Close proximity to the winery allowed for immediate crushing and chilling. Only the free run juice was used to make this wine. After crushing the juice was allowed some skin contact to extract further flavour. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, after which, the wine was allowed to sit on light lees for several months, improving its body and mouth feel.
These grapes for this wine came from the vineyards of Kerem Ben Zimra, located in Ramat Dalton in the highlands of the Upper Galilee and Elkosh in the western Galilee. The vineyards were maintained to provide as much shade for the grapes as possible with little to no direct sunlight hitting the grapes.
This is a crisp fruity wine with a medium body and long palate. It is a wine that is characterized by tropical fruit and notes of grapefruit and pineapples.
Sauvignon Blanc is a good accompaniment to baked fish dishes, grilled tuna, veal and grilled chicken.
