Kosher wine. Drink now through to 2028. No need to decant before serving.

The Flam family have been making wine for decades and Israel Flam was the first Israeli to graduate from UC Davis’s Viticulture and Oenology school in the 1960s. In the 1990s Israel’s sons, Golan and Gilad, travelled to Tuscany to tour some of Italy’s top producers where they were inspired to found their own boutique winery in the Judean Hills close to Jerusalem.

Their Merlot Reserve is crafted from grapes grown in the family’s Mata vineyard at the heart of the Judean Hills where conditions are well-suited to Merlot. The warm Mediterranean climate is moderated by the elevation and cooling breezes from the mountains which help the grapes to reach optimum maturity while having a good balance between acidity and sugar.

The grapes are harvested at night to preserve the delicate aromatics and flavour profile and the wine is aged in French oak barrels before bottling. The result is a remarkably smooth, intense Merlot which opens with seductive dark berry aromas, bitter chocolate, and dried herbs. The full body and firm tannins make this an excellent candidate for extended cellar ageing and it will continue to evolve and develop over the next decade or so.
