At such a difficult time for our friends in Lebanon, we feel it is vital to support one of our favourite producers. And what better way than to showcase this stunning wine from one of the most important regions in the wine-making world. So important that it was the Phoenicians (seafaring ancestors of the modern Lebanese) were instrumental in bringing vines and wines from Byblos across to all of the areas around the Mediterranean.
Flanked by snow-covered mountains and nestled at 1000m (3,000 feet) above sea level, the serenely beautiful Bekaa Valley is blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, fresh mountain breezes and an average temperature of 25°C. Simply put, perfect conditions for growing vines, so much so that vines have been cultivated here for at least 6,000 years.
Four years in the making, Hochar Père et Fils red is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from a single vineyard near the Bekaa Valley village of Aana, characterised by deep soils over limestone. A bright ruby colour with red fruits, plums, sloes and cherries on the nose and palate. A fantastically well balanced wine that combines vibrant fruit, soft tannins and gorgeous mouthfeel on the palate. Enjoy now, or if cellared well, it will keep for several years.
