Galil Ela

The 2010 Galil Ela is a blend of 45% Syrah, 45% Barbera, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc.

The wine is dark red in color with characters of plum, sour cherry, pitanga, violet blossom and herbs, along with notes of oak and a hint of butter. A medium-to-full bodied wine with noticeable acidity and a long-lasting, pleasant finish

The Ela is ready to drink now and If stored under proper conditions, the wine should age well for 3-5 years from time of harvest. Try the wine with seasoned dishes such as rice cakes with lamb and herbs, pasta with red sauce and fresh herbs, barbecued chicken, or even pan-seared sirloin steak.

The winter preceding the 2011 harvest was cold with rainfall significantly above the annual average, while the spring growing season was 2-3 degrees colder than normal. Due to such cool climatic conditions, the vines awakened from their winter hibernation late, and their development during the season was delayed by two weeks to a month. As a result, the harvest of most blocks was delayed by up to a month. Mild weather during the growing season enabled the development of pleasant flavors, which should be reflected in the quality of the wines.

The wine underwent 10-20 days of fermentation on skins at 28oC (82oF), full malolactic fermentation, a year of aging in French oak barrels.
