Binyamina reserve cabernet sauvignon is one of our top selling premium wines. This noble grape variety comes from vineyards planted in two adjacent appellations: the upper galilee on a combination of basaltic and terra rossa soil over a layer of hard limestone bedrock with efficient aeration of the roots; and the center of the golan heights with its deep basaltic soil and good drainage. These two areas enjoy a cool climate with chilly summer nights hot summer days and low humidity. These conditions encourage prolonged ripening and ideal development of the grapes’ color aroma and flavor. Winemaking process the grapes from both regions are harvested after nightfall with each vineyard harvested at a slightly different time for optimal grape ripeness. The grapes are destemmed as soon as they arrive at the winery and begin fermentation in small and medium sized tanks holding 5-12 tons each for the purposes of fermentation and extraction of flavors. The grapes undergo one to two weeks of skin contact before pressing. Malolactic fermentation and a light clarification follow and the wine is then transferred to french oak barrels 30% of which are new for aging over an 18 month period. The blend is then selected from the various plots and the wine is bottled with minimal clarification and filtration. Tasting notes binyamina reserve cabernet sauvignon is characterized by a restrained maturity and excellent balance between freshness and concentration of ripe fruit flavors. Its rich dark color concentrated aroma and flavor complementary acidity and high complexity are the result of optimal ripening conditions and diverse terroirs. In addition the reduced vineyard yields enable the wine to achieve a perfect refined balance. The wine has a deep ruby-black color with a prominent bouquet of ripe blackberries cherries cassis and roasted coffee which are the typical cabernet markers from the plots. With a full balanced and generous body this wine is ready to drink as is but will continue to develop for four to eight years from its vintage date. Best enjoyed with this wine is a perfect accompaniment to richly flavored meals specifically meat dishes such as sirloin with wild mushrooms entrecote steak on the bone or beef bourguignon. It’s equally suited to hard cheeses made from sheep’s milk like manchego. – binyamina
