Additional Information on Barkan Shiraz Classic Kosher Syrah

Winery Barkan

Varietal: Syrah

Known as Syrah in most countries around the world, and Shiraz in Australia and certain other regions of the New World, this grape varietal has proven over the centuries to be one of the most powerful and flavorful red wine grapes there is. It is now one of the planet's most widely grown grapes, and is a favorite with wineries as a result of its robustness and versatility. It isn't easy to identify many characteristics of this particular varietal, due to the fact that it is highly versatile and shows significant differences in flavor and character depending on the terroir it is grown in, and the climatic conditions of the region. However, Syrah is most widely associated with full bodied, strong and loud red wines, packed full of fruity and spicy flavors, held in a beautifully deep red liquid.

Region: Galilee

Galilee is a region of unrivaled historical, religious and cultural importance, and is beginning to really find its feet as a wine region, too. The blazing sunshine which beats down on the Israeli vineyards around the base of Mount Tabor allows vintners to grow grapes of exceptional quality, and the volcanic, basalt enriched soils found in the region are ideal for producing and cultivating a wide range of grape varietals. A surprising amount of Bordeaux grapes are successfully grown in Galilee, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Chardonnay all doing particularly well in the region. As one might expect, the wine making process which turns such wines into grapes in Galilee is carefully overseen by religious specialists, in order to sell the wines as kosher products around the world.

Country: Israel

For thousands of years, Israel has been an important country for wine production, with major wine regions growing thousands of acres of grapevines in the hot Mediterranean climate. The land itself is ideal for wine production, and has a mineral rich limestone based soil which helps ensure the grapes grow to full ripeness. Many of the vineyards of Israel are located at high altitudes, such as the popular and successful vineyards of Golan Heights in the Galil region, where the cooler temperatures and strong breezes create an ideal environment in which the imported French grape varietals can grow. Indeed, French grape varietals make up for the vast majority of grapes grown in Israel, with Cabernet Sauvigon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes growing in all five wine regions of the country.
