The Details

In a Nutshell

Warm, rich red with a hint of Arabian spice.

Abundant cassis and ripe morello cherry fruit, this is complex and multi-layered with firm yet appealing tannins and some spice on the finish.

Traditional vinification in concrete vats, after 10 days fermentation the wine is blended and then aged in concrete vats for 16 months.

Plucky is the adjective that tends to describe Lebanese winemakers, working as they do in conditions that can be challenging for reasons other than the weather. But there’s more to the wines than the tale of their production. There’s real flair, for example, in this blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault from the country’s oldest commercial winery, Domaine des Tourelles. Like many reds with French influence, it’s pitched in style between Bordeaux and the Rhône, with a bright cherry character and gently gripping tannins.
