Aromatic and intense with full and rich body.
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.
Cabernet Sauvignon is famous for the fine red wines it produces. Our Galil vineyards in northern Israel yielded rich, ripe Cabernet grapes during the growing season, which led to the production of truly fine wine. The wine displays a deep ruby red color, a bouquet redolent of spicy berry aromas intermingled with oak, and a full, rounded body. (Winemaker)
Pairs well with grilled meats and sauces, as well as cheeses like gouda, cheddar or blue cheese.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
|Wine maker notes
|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.
|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.
