Barkan Reserve Chardonnay 2014 is from the Barkan Winery, in Israel. Barkan's Reserve Chardonnay is produced using carefully selected Chardonnay grapes grown in vineyards in the Jerusalem corridor. At the onset of fermentation approximately one third of the juice is separated to complete fermentation in new oak barrels. This portion remains in barrels for 6 months before being blended with the balance of the wine that is tank fermented at low temperatures.
The wine is an elegant, complex blend of the buttery character of the barrel fermentation and the clean crisp freshness of mountain grown Chardonnay. It has received several Gold Medals from Chardonnay du Monde
