Winemaking Process

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes are harvested three weeks apart and each is delivered to the winery after nightfall. After destemming, the grapes are cold soaked followed by an alcoholic fermentation lasting approximately one week. After the extraction of flavors and color from contact with the grape skins, the grapes are gently pressed. Following brief stabilization, some of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and the remainder is transferred to oak barrels for several months of aging to enhance the flavors and complexity. The final blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz is selected just prior to bottling and then the wine continues to age for an additional few months in order to achieve the ideal balance of flavors before its release to the market.

Tasting Notes

Yogev Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz reflects the best of both its varieties; the ripe fruitiness and subtle smoky nature of the Shiraz are supported by the backbone, vigor and intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is ready to drink as is, but with proper storage conditions, it will age nicely for three to four years after its vintage date. Oak notes are deliberately negligible in order to bring the flavor of the grapes to the fore.

 

Best Enjoyed With

This is a very versatile wine when it comes to food, and can be well paired with mildly piquant dishes such as spicy sausages. It is no less enjoyable alongside fish such as oven-baked sea bass fillet with herbs, smoked meat dishes or flame-grilled eggplant
