Wine maker notes
The grapes are pressed pneumatically as whole grapes, sedimentation and fermentation are done at a low temperature (18°C). When the sugars are exhausted, the wine is racked off and sulphured to prevent malolactic fermentation.
The various wines are matured for three months in French oak casks, before being blended, fined, stabilized and bottled.
This wine can be served as an aperitif or with delicate fresh fish and shell fish. To be served chilled at 8°C.
Lebanese wine tradition dates back 5,000 years, when the ancient inhabitants of Lebanon, the Phoenicians, first began tending vineyards. The Phoenicians exported wine to ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece and Carthage; introducing the world to viticulture and oenology. Lebanon is also said to be the place where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine.
