The name of the wine symbolizes the altitude of the vineyard above sea level.
This wine is grown from a vineyard at an altitude of 720 meters above sea level, in the Godrim Mountains which lies between the Dovav Settlements and the Lebanese border. After a maturation period of 14 months in oak casks, most of which are made from French oak, the wine is bottled without shading.
This wine has the potential to evolve gracefully for a long period time.
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.
The wine is produced under strict controlled conditions from top-quality grapes of the winery from a variety of vineyards in the Upper Galilee and the southern Golan Heights, which contribute to the complexity of the fruit characteristics. The final blend is made from mature wines made in new and used oak casks. The Barkan team of winemakers who are responsible for the production of the wine, is proud of its deep, red shade, its rich and soft fruit and the complexity of spices, which is a true representation of the variety’s place of growth.
In the world of winemaking, the Cabernet Sauvignon is labeled as a top wine with a grape variety of the highest potential. The Cabernet Sauvignon wine in the Superieur Elite Series, fully expresses this grape variety in the spectrum of wines of the Barkan Winery. The wine is produced in four plots in Merom Galil, which has an excellent reputation for producing superb Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. These plots were harvested when the grapes were fully mature, each plot and sub-plot when it was ready.
