"...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.

50% Tannat, 33% Touriga Nacional, 16% Zinfandel
These three varietals unite together in this Coalition, each component bringing its strengths to a blend that is better and more balanced than the sum of its parts. The Tannat, grown on steep limestone slopes, provides ripe cherry fruit, color and structure.
The Touriga Nacional provides very complex, spicy notes and the Zinfandel contributes intense acidity and more red cherry fruit.
58% Grenache, 28% Syrah,
Our Rhône styled blend of primarily Grenache with some Syrah and Mourvèdre blended in, delivers classical medium bodied, red fruited layered complexity with the Syrah adding herbal spice and the Mourvèdre adding complex animal notes for a full spectrum of flavors and aromatics.
