Winemaker Notes

#54 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2018

This aromatic and intense wine was produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, meticulously picked from the vineyards of the Barkan Winery in the Galilee, giving the wine a rich body and abundant taste.

Wine Enthusiast

Dark ruby to the eye, this wine offers a bouquet of cherry and lavender. Its blackberry, strawberry, orange zest and bittersweet chocolate flavors are set amid slightly grippy tannins that are overcome by strong acidity, especially towards the finish.

Barkan was founded in 1990 in the Israeli village of Barkan, by Yair Lerner and Shmuel Boxer. Barkan immediately began to plant vineyards in and around Barkan, and quickly grew to become of the largest in Israel. In 2007, Barkan winery moved to a much larger, state of the art modern facility in Kibbutz Hulda. Located on a 50,000 square meter area, it includes a 12 million liter tank farm, an automated crushing and fermentation plant, and a 10000 square meter air conditioned filling and case storage building. 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.

The winery's location allows the grapes to be quickly transported to the winery, to ensure freshness and to maximize quality. In addition, the strategic location was optimal for distribution of the bottled wine to market.  

As the second largest winery in Israel, Barkan receives over 8000 tons of grapes during the harvest, and devotes nights and days throughout the year to ensure that the fruit received from the vineyard is the best possible. This devotion continues with all of the staff through harvest, winemaking, bottling, marketing and sales; all done to ensure that the bottle that you open will be the best that can be made. As well, Barkan’s head winemaker Ido Lewinsohn is a candidate for the Master of Wine diploma.

With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
