Mount Hermon Red 2022, Golan Heights Winery, Galilee, Israel

Mount Hermon Red is produced from a blend of Bordeaux style varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan. The 2022 Mount Hermon Red presents aromatic aromas of red and black fruits, layered with hints of fresh herbs, earth and cocoa. Great for everyday drinking, this young, blended wine exhibits satisfying body and lingering flavor. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was bottled without sterile filtration.
