These 20-25 year old vines are located in West Bekaa, 1050m above sea level. Grapes are hand harvested from vines in gravel and limestone with clay subsoils. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in stainless steel tanks for 10 days, after which the wine is blended then aged in oak barrels (half new, half old) for 8 months.
A nose of ripe stonefruit, vanilla and a touch of hazelnut complexity. The palate is rich with bright, slightly exotic fruit flavours and cinnamon. The wine has enough acidity to provide balance and the finish is long, nutty and elegant. This is unique and rewarding Chardonnay.
