Segal Wild Fermentation Cabernet Sauvignon
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. In 2001, Segal’s was bought by the Barkan Group.
Dark garnet towards purple in color, with on the nose ripe black fruit, cherries, cinnamon, cedar and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, good concentration with on the palate ripe blackberries and black cherries, a touch of roasted herbs, oriental spices, tobacco, with medium acidity and soft tannins, as well as hints of vanilla on a moderately long finish.
