HERMON RED 2015

The Wine

The 2015 Mount Hermon Red presents complex red and black fruit characters with aromatic spice notes and hints of fresh herbs. With medium body and satisfying flavor, this is a wine to enjoy all week long.

Ready to drink now, the 2015 Mount Hermon Red will remain in great condition for about three years from harvest. Try this versatile blended wine with assorted cheeses, eggplant parmigiana, pasta Bolognese, or a grilled hanger steak.

The Vintage

Though we had heavy rains in November, the winter saw only 75% of our normal precipitation. Following a cool spring, we headed into harvest 10-14 days later than usual. If in the past a cool spring normally meant a cool summer, this was not the case in 2015. Indeed, we recorded our warmest ever September, including a historic dust storm. We concluded the harvest on schedule, with our vineyards looking surprisingly verdant. Despite the unusual conditions in 2015, the Golan once again proved itself to be a phenomenal place to grow quality wine.

The 2015 Mount Hermon Red was made from a blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, harvested from our vineyards on the cool Golan Heights. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, and was bottled without sterile filtration.

The Appellation

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.
