Product Description:

NOT MEVUSHAL

"Or HaGanuz Winery was founded in 2005 and lies at the foot of Mount Meron in the Or HaGanuz settlement, a collaborative, religious community of Orthodox Jews who have adopted the principle of “working for the common good” – similar to the kibbutz model. The name of both the community and winery, translated from Hebrew, means “Hidden Light” and is derived from Kabbalah, referring to the original light described in the Bible as the first act of creation. The Or HaGanuz vineyards enjoy the unique climate of the Upper Galilee mountains, at a height of 2,259-2,854 feet above sea level, which is optimal for a variety of high-quality grapes. This dessert wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Shiraz grapes. Selective hand harvesting brought only the finest clusters to the winery, where they underwent a 3-day controlled cooling. The grape juice was then fermented at a controlled temperature to maintain its characteristic fruity taste and barrel aged outdoors in French oak for 10 months." -Winery
