Barkan Shiraz Classic Kosher
Barkan Barkan Shiraz Classic Kosher 2010
This wine is based on Shiraz grapes harvested at Barkan's Tel-Safi vineyard. Accurate management of yield levels and irrigation regime has allowed picking vibrant, flavorful berries despite the warmer-than-average vintage. Winemaking was aimed at guarding and developing this fresh, juicy fruit. Ageing was brief, no more than 6 months, preferring stainless steel tanks to barrels. The result is an energetic wine that's a pleasure to sip. It's also a great food wine!

This Shiraz boasts a deep purple robe, and is redolent of ripe berries: raspberries, cassis and black cherries, with a hint of sweet vanilla. Its round tannins and fleshy fruit create a plush mouth-feel. The fruit is ripe but avoids heaviness. It's drinking well today and would probably evolve nicely over 2-3 years.

Notes on the Barkan Shiraz Classic Kosher 750ML 2010

Technical Notes Barkan was founded in 1990, by Yair Lerner and Shmuel Boxer. They immediately set forth on a program of modernization and the planting of vineyards, which they saw as the key to the production of fine wine and expansion of the company.

Barkan immediately began to plant vineyards in and around Barkan, where it would ultimately build a state of the art modern winery.  Kibbutz Hulda was chosen given both its proximity to the vineyards of Hulda, as well as its central location, close to major roads and removed from urban areas.  Today Barkan receives grapes from vineyards from all the best regions in Israel; such as the Golan Heights, the Upper Galilee and the Lebanese border area, the lower Galilee and Tavor, the Jerusalem mountains, and Israel's south, around Mitzpe Ramon.
