Massaya Cap Est 2017
An elegant distinctive pale ruby wine with a nose that subtly blends violets and ripe red berry fruits leading to a progressive body and a compelling minerality. Seductive velvety elegance overlays an attractive weave of fine tannins, highlighting the minerality of the terroir. Suitable for ageing.
The grapes are grown on the hillsides of the north-easterly portion of the Beqaa Valley at an altitude of 1,200 metres, in the Ras Baalbeck area. An arid and continental environment, where Mount Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon mountain ranges meet. VINE AGE: 18 years on average. VINIFICATION: conducted at our Tanail winery. Grapes are hand-picked, conveyed in crates, and sorted on tables. They are fully destemmed, then vinified for at least 30 days in temperature controlled oak vats. MATURATION: 22 months in oak vats. Bottled without fining or filtering at 2 years.
