This Shiraz draws its essence from the revered expanses of Barkan's vineyards in Judea. The vines, rooted deeply in the sacred soils of Israel, from Galilee's northern reaches to the arid Negev in the south, are nourished by a climate rich in contrasts. Such diversity encapsulates the spirit of Israel itself - a blend of history, culture, and innovation. With its foundation laid in 1990 by visionaries Yair Lerner and Shmuel Boxer, Barkan Winery has evolved into one of Israel's wine pillars, all the while preserving the echo of the land's ancient viticultural soul.

The Classic Shiraz 2021 vividly portrays its terroir - mature fruits envelop the senses, heralded by a deep, inviting shade that speaks volumes of its medium-full body. A sensory journey ensues, marked by the lushness of ripe berries and the subtle whispers of the earth that bore them, crafting a tale as old as the vineyards themselves.

A Heritage Refined

Barkan's dedication to the craft transcends mere winemaking. With over 890 hectares under vine, the winery's land stewardship reflects a broader narrative of ecological mindfulness and respect for the terroir. The Assemblage Series, of which the Classic Shiraz shares lineage, epitomizes this commitment, marrying the land's bounty with the artisan's touch to produce unparalleled depth and complexity wines.

A Celebratory Sip:

The 2021 Classic Shiraz invites a pairing that complements its robust character. Imagine it alongside a hearty beef stew or a plate of artisanal cheeses, each sip celebrating Israel's winemaking journey. This wine is not merely to be tasted but to be experienced, a bridge between the past and the present, inviting connoisseurs and novices alike to partake in the legacy of Barkan Vineyards.

Embrace the essence of Galilee with the Barkan Vineyards Classic Shiraz 2021 - a testament to the enduring spirit of Israeli winemaking, where every glass poured is a story waiting to be told.
