Gilgal Merlot was produced from Merlot grapes grown in the Golan Heights. The cool climate, rocky volcanic soil, and high altitude are ideal conditions for growing this classic variety. Aging in French oak barrels for 9 months rounds out the berry, floral, and spice characters in this approachable and elegant Merlot.
Ready to drink upon release, the 2007 Gilgal Merlot will remain in good drinking condition for some seven years from harvest. Try this lively Merlot with roasted chicken and sticky carrots, grilled beef with sesame dressing, or any other quality grilled meat.
The 2007 Gilgal Merlot exhibits abundant notes of berry and cherry, with attractive hints of fresh herbs and carob. This tasty and complex wine features a medium body with good fruit.
