"...these are extraordinary wines"
Shirah Wine LLC is dedicated to producing the highest quality kosher wine with a focus on varietals, blends and styles that are not yet well known to the kosher wine drinker. Their primary focus is (at least currently) is on producing ultra-premium Syrah. Then as a natural extension, they will be focusing on Rhone varietals, and varietals and blends not yet produced at the highest level for the kosher market. They work with very small batches and their style is influenced mainly by the most highly regarded producers in California. They try to utilize multiple vineyards, varietals, yeasts, techniques, cooperages, etc. in the wines to add complexity and to explore these different elements and learn about what they can contribute to the wine drinking experience.

75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon
Semillon in this blend is a little bit more subtle aromatically than
Sauvignon Blanc, bringing more nuance. BroDeux Blanc has a
great guava enote, some old world reductive notes and amazing acidity.
This Grüner was fermented primarily in a terra cotta amphora and a small proportion fermented in a new, lightly toasted Austrian Stockinger barrel. This barrel imparts a fragrant character from the wood that accentuates the fruitiness and also the spiciness of the wine.
