Segal's Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon Mevushal 2018
Segal's Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon is a rustic, intense wine that you need to approach with caution. But like many wild beasts, once it sees your intentions are good it will become a friend for life. Fearless winemaker Avi Feldstein takes the bold step of avoiding filtration, thereby ensuring that not a molecule of rich Cabernet character is left behind. Deep red color, with notes of black currant, blackberry and mint.
In 1925, Yankel Hirsh Segal and his family emigrated to Israel and settled in Tel Aviv. Brothers Elhanan and Yehezkel established Israel’s first distillery in the German colony known as Sharona, or Kirya, in Tel Aviv. Their experience and reputation led them, in the 1930s, to be asked by the French rulers to set up distilleries in Beirut and Damascus. In 1954 the family decided to concentrate on wine production. The winery moved to Ramle, and was called the Zvi Vineyard. The name was later changed to Segal Wines. All the winery’s bottles bear the Segal wine logo, reproduced in Zvi Hirsh’s own handwriting.
