Massaya le Colombier 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

*SALLY EASTON MASTER OF WINE REVIEW* "Intriguing nose of fennel and raspberries, lifted and fresh. Black pepper spice on the palate, with sweet, as though sun-dried raspberries and dark cherries. Smooth tannins alcohol integrated well. Interesting, off-piste wine of good concentration. Savoury and sweet fruit combo all together. Worth the risk, I'd venture. Definitely worth going off piste for." - Sally Easton MW, November 2016 This delicious vin de soif has a notable freshness due to the high altitude of the Beqaa Valley which has an average altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The grapes grow on the hillsides where the favourable climate renders irrigation and the use of pesticides unnecessary. Vinified from a blend of Cinsault, Grenache Noir, Syrah and Tempranillo at Tanaïl, the wine is transported to the new Faqra cellar to benefit from maturation in the cooler conditions of the cellars tunnelled into the mountain side. With supple red fruit, notes of dried herbs and delicate tannins this lends itself to being drunk slightly chilled without food or with cured meats. Drink to 2018.
