Grand Reserve

 
 

Swarovski Cooperation

 

This is a luxury wine produced in partnership with the renowned international Swarovski fashion house in a limited series of 150 magnum (1.5 liter) and double-magnum (3 liter) bottles decorated with unique Swarovski crystals.

The Wine

Swarovski 2010 belongs to Benhaim Winery’s Grand Reserve (GR) series. This is a dry red wine produced from 90%  Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Sirah grapes sourced from the winery’s vineyards at Mount Meron in the Upper Galilee.
The wine is rich in tastes and fragrances, with a fruity and full-bodied finish. Its color is glistening purple and its tannins are subtle yet pronounced.

Generous fruity palate with spicy, cedary, smoky tones and a long developed aftertaste of raisins and nuts.

This is an impressive wine with the potential of aging well over a period of many years.
