In the winery, Shalom applies painstaking, spare-no-expense winemaking techniques to coax the very best flavors from the fermentation. The proof is in the bottle: deep color, aromas of cassis, roasted coffee beans and menthol, giant flavors of blackberry and fresh vanilla bean.
The traditional Tunisian jewelry depicted on the main label reflects the origins of Alexander Shalom. This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard, planted 2,264 feet above sea level in Ein-Seter, Mitzpe Hayamin mountain in Upper Galilee. Low yield, some of the best growing conditions in Israel, and state-of-the-art agrotechnology resulted in distinct, top-quality grapes. The grapes were harvested early in the morning and strictly sorted; ontly the best grape clusters were sent for crushing and a long, controlled alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged 24 months in French oak (80%) and American oak (20%) barrels in strictly controlled temperatures.
