 Region: Lebanon

Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Syrah 30%, Carignan 20%, Cinsault 20%

Tasting Note Intense and aromatic aromas of wild red and black fruits are overlaid with hints of black pepper spice. Beautifully structured on the palate, with well integrated tannins enveloping the rich fruit through to a long finish.

Winemaking The fruit was carefully sorted to ensure only healthy, ripe grapes were vinified. Each variety was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 28°C with inoculated yeasts. Remontage or pump overs took place periodically to oxygenate the wine and extract tannins. Moderate post-fermentation maceration took place to extract colour, flavour and impart structure to the wine. The wine went through malolactic conversion resulting in a softer palate and was made without oak influence to showcase the purity of fruit. The wine was carefully blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon imparting black fruit flavours and mid-palate texture, the Syrah adding structure and spicy notes, the Carignan offering deep colour and balancing freshness and the Cinsault a softness and aromatic notes. Gently filtered prior to bottling.
