Wine maker notes
This wine is produced from the best vineyards of the Barkan Winery in the Upper Galilee. The grapes on each plot were separately picked in small vessels after they were fully mature. The wine stayed in contact with the grape seeds for a period of 4 weeks, to extract the maximum taste of the grapes. The wine aged in new oak casks, mainly from French oak, for a period of 20 months.
During the meticulous process of picking the best oak casks, the winemakers decided that by adding 10% Cabernet Sauvignon Galilee, a perfect wine would be created, giving it a profound complexity. The wine was bottled after minimum drainage and continued the aging process in the winery’s basements.
Barkan winery was born at the end of the 19th century. Its current incarnation is a wine paradise. So how did we do that?
It was actually simple. From the very first days of our existence, we have concentrated our attention on one thing only: grapes’ quality. The top-grade breeds were brought from all over the world and put in Barkan vineyards in Israel. Nowadays, there are dozens of breeds occupying a grand total of over 10 square kilometers of vineyards in winery’s possession, while every breed is grown in an area suitable for it.
In 2000, a new sophisticated winery was established at Hulda kibbutz located in the Judean plain. The winery was designed with 21st century in mind. It boasts the most advanced production technologies in the world. The winery includes laboratories, farms, the packaging center, and the marketing & logistics center. Thanks to the enormous assortment of wine breeds and growth areas, the advanced fermentation methods, as well as over 5,000 natural oak barrels, Barkan winery is a real wine paradise.
