This Shiraz was grown in one of Barkan's vineyards in the hills surrounding Jerusalem. The low yield vines resulted in an intense, massive wine that was aged 18 months in the finest French oak barrels. Color is deep ruby-purple. Typical Shiraz notes on the nose: spicy blue and black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries, notes of licorice and ground black pepper, with hints of new leather and roasted coffee beens. On the palate, the wine offers ripe but not jammy berry fruit overlaid with spice and minerality, laced with subtle notes of vanilla and cedar wood. The wine is well structured, with fine-grained tannins and a medium to full body; yet it escapes heaviness and over-ripeness. The finish is long, brimming with elegant mineral and spicy notes. In style, it is more Northern Rhône than Barossa Valley. A true "Vin de garde" this Superieur is at present tightly-wound and would benefit from 1-2 hours in a decanter. This wine pairs deliciously with a leg of lamb roasted with Herbs de Provance. This wine was given Terravino Gold Award in 2010.
