Misty Hills 2017
Misty Hills is produced from the winery’s best vineyard plot, ‘fossils’ plot. The wine is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah grapes sourced from this north-facing slope plot with Terra-Rosa soil.
The 2017 vintage resulted in a typical Misty Hills, a complex, elegant wine with flavors of black fruit and elevated minerality.
The wine’s name is a tribute to the morning mists that often cover our vineyards. These mists form as warm air from the Mediterranean collides with cool air descending from the mountains. Planted in stony soils along the slopes of the Judean Hills, our vineyards are uniquely located to take advantage of this climatic phenomenon.
Misty Hills 2017 is a result of a joint work with our consultant, Mr. Jean-Claude Berrouet, the preceding Technical Director of Pétrus.
The illustration on the Misty Hills label portrays the epitome of Terroir: The symbiotic bond between Soil, Vine, and Human.
