Teperberg 1870 Winery Legacy Cabernet Franc 2012
The wine is characterized by the typical aroma of this variety combined with fruit and wood scents. The velvety texture of the wine and its presence remains on the palate long after drinking. This wine matured in oak barrels for 18 months, until a complete synergy of flavors was reached.
Avraham Teperberg (1st generation) immigrates to Jerusalem in the late 19th century, after mastering winemaking in Austria. He settles inside the walls of the old city and establishes the Teberberg Winery. Today, over 150 years later, the fifth generation builds on the family's distinguished heritage, producing exceptionally fine wines from their estate in Israel. The grapes for this Legacy Cabernet Franc wine were grown at a vineyard located 2,132 feet above sea level, on the slopes of the Shomron mountains. The vineyard, which is characterized by a unique climate, has a distinct impact on the character of the wine.
