Drink now or cellar for up to 12 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Pelter family have been farmers in Israel since 1970 when Sam Pelter emigrated to the country from the USA. They are well known in Israel for their boutique Pelter winery in the Golan Heights, and in 2012 Sam’s two sons Tal and Nir started a new winemaking project named Matar. This label specialises in top quality kosher wines crafted from fruit sourced from across Israel. This diversity of terroirs gives the family maximum flexibility and creativity in their winemaking.

Cumulus is a charming kosher red blend composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes from the Golan Heights and Jerusalem Hills. The fruit is all harvested by hand to maintain quality and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature. The young wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 14 months before bottling.

The blend is named after the soft, pillowy Cumulus cloud thanks to its soft, smooth texture and easy-going medium body with ample ripe fruit flavours. Blackberry, cassis and dark cherry notes abound on the nose while the palate offers plenty of elegant tannins and a long finish with lingering notes of spice, woodsmoke, and crushed wild berries.
