Galil Mountain Ela 2018

Ela is deep purple in color. It is a full-bodied wine with delicate and balanced acidity followed by a long-lasting finish and velvety texture. The wine has fruity aromas of black cherry, fresh blueberry and plum jam, with clove, coffee and browned butter in the background. The wine underwent 10-20 days of fermentation on skins at 28 oC, followed by full malolactic fermentation and 12 months of aging in French oak barrels.
The growing season prior to harvest began with a rainy winter. Flowering started with moist soil and good growing conditions. Spring began earlier than normal, leading to early maturity in most plots. The beginning of spring was marked by strong vine growth, putting pressure on winemakers to harvest their tasks on time. Throughout the season, the weather was moderate with no extreme events. The vintage shows signs of very high quality.
