Tasting notes
A solid and concentrated wine, with mature fruit, yet vivacious with a structure of harsh tannins.

Wine maker notes
The Pinotage plots on the vineyards of the Barkan Winery in Tel-Tzafit, located on the western hills of the Judaean Mountains, have proven their potential for growth. The first being the Sidra plot which was strictly monitored during the growth period. Drastically diminishing the crop yield and a strict irrigation regimen, enabled a very high-quality yield from the black Pinotage grapes, which have a highly concentrated taste. A harvest of fully mature grapes, strict fermentation, and extended irrigation, made it possible to fully extract the essence of the grapes. As the wine aged in a collection of new oak casks, after a maturation period of 18 months and regular tastings, the Barkan winemakers choose 18 of the finest oak casks for the final production of the wine. The wine was bottled after minimum drainage and continued the maturation process in the bottles. Barkanís Pinotage Superieur 2008, highly reflects this original grape variety: a solid and concentrated wine, with mature fruit, yet vivacious with a structure of harsh tannins, that enable the wine to fully mature and reach new heights of complexity and rich flavors.
