Kosher wine- Psagot Edom-Red 2008.

The grapes (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot) were harvested from vineyards in Jerusalem Hills. The grapes are brought immediately after harvest into the winery for a gentle crushing and destemming. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks starting off cool (60º F) and working up to an aggressive fermentation (93º F). The wine underwent both pump-overs and punch-downs as much as five to eight times a day. The wine also underwent a full malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels giving the wine a very complex character. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 14 months.

The Psagot vineyard re planted on hard, rocky limestone terrain which is terraced in the Mediterranean Greek-Italian fashion. In order to facilitate the vine’s absorption into the ground, holes were drilled into the ground so that the vine’s roots would take hold well below the ground surface. The distance between vines is one meter, and the yield is low – about 600 kilograms per dunam. The terraced terrain makes harvesting difficult, but the 900-meter altitude and the snow which covers the vineyard in the winter compensate for the aforementioned difficult growing conditions ultimately yielding extremely high-quality grapes.
 
The Merlot, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc species are harvested from the Dolev vineyard on the other side of the mountain ridge.
 
The vines grow in ideal climatic conditions for these species.
