Or Haganuz Namura Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This Flagship Wine of the winery was produced in a limited quantity of 3000 bottles only from northern Galilee Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the tiny Namura vineyard, only 3,000sqm large, at 800 meters above sea level, on a western facing slope with a sharp incline. The soil is terra rossa. The Namura vineyard, located at the foot of Mt. Meron's northern slope, enjoys a unique climate ideal for growing noble grape varieties. Meticulous and dedicated care and personal attention to the vines yielded perfect clusters for the winery's flagship wine. The grapes underwent a meticulous grain sorting process, cold marination of the grape juice, a controlled fermentation, ending with another marination over the skins. The wine then aged for 24 months in fine French oak 500 Lit. barrels, was bottled without filtering, aged a further period in the bottle and will continue to age well over the next decade.
