Internet Exclusive
An astonishing harmonized wine, with caressing tannin and a balanced, long finish.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This is a dark, dense blend of 52% Syrah, 30% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of cassis, blackberry and plum lead on the bouquet, with background accents of tree bark and forest floor. The firm structure and gripping tannins are softened by ripe black-fruit flavors that carry through to the lingering finish. Balanced but young, this should develop greater complexity and nuance with time; drink 2016-2020. - Cellar Selection (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
The Eitan is a blend of Syrah and Merlot in equal amounts with a smaller percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes were cultivated on terraced terra rossa vineyards at Kiryat Anavim in the southern Judaean Mountains. The wines aged in oak casks for a period of 12 months, before they are blended to produce the wine. The wine is a combination of red fruit such as red berries and cranberries with a hue of green thyme and oregano, and a hint of old leather. An elegant wine, that is drinkable now, but will only get better after maturation in comfortable conditions. With a panoramic view of its surroundings, the Eitan Mountain, with a height of 788 meters, is one of the most impressive on the mountains of Jerusalem. The mountain represents the unique climate that can be found in the area, characterized by nightly temperatures, which provide optimal conditions to grow the grape varieties.

Producer
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.
