Tasting notes - Made from Obeidy, an indigenous Lebanese white variety, this aromatic wine has exotic fruit and mineral flavours through to a lovely, whistle clean finish.
The vines are planted at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level, where the
warm days are tempered by cooler nights. The summer diurnal temperature
difference is 20°C, which encourages an extended ripening period, concentrating
the flavours and aromatic complexity in the berries, while retaining balancing acidity
from the cool nights. The soil is calcareous clay which is a cool soil that has good
water retention properties to nourish the vines during the hot, dry summers. Due to its
pH, calcareous clay soils tend to produce refreshing wines, which encourages
further balance to the ripeness of fruit. The vines are cane pruned and are planted
at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare. The vineyard is cultivated with respect for the
environment and the grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity. Obeidy is an
indigenous Lebanese variety which is unique to Lebanon and thrives in this terroir. It
was previously used in the production of Arak, but is now coming into its own as a
varietal white wine.
