Offering spicy reds and an ever improving range of whites, Lebanese wine – mostly centred in the Bekaa Valley – is not a new phenomenon, with evidence of ancient Phoenician wine production dating as far back as 750 BC. Favouring French grapes, the country’s top producers stick to their own methods of production, giving wines that offer a unique expression of the grape that are growing in popularity with international consumers. Try the distinctive Vinoix from Chateau Heritage – a dessert wine macerated over green walnuts for a distinctive nutty taste.
With a deep, almost black ruby colour, this wine has a splendid blackcurrant and blackberry nose with spiced notes. A full round mouth, confirmed by black fruits with noble tannins that are very present. Very beautiful length and good persistence in the mouth.
This is an aperitif wine, made according to a secret family recipe that was passed on from generation to generation in the Touma family. The sweet wine made out of Muscat, and Ugni-Blanc, and macerated over green walnuts, give this wine a unique taste that is sure to be a surprise. To be drunk chilled as an aperitif or as an after dinner drink.
