Fresh from Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley

Winemaking is seeing an incredible resurgence in Lebanon, and rosé is becoming an important product for export.

A wine with a lot of personality, Massaya Rosé from Lebanon is a gorgeous strawberry colour, with aromas of red berry fruits and subtle spice, best enjoyed within 2 years of release.

The grapes grown on the hillsides of the Beqaa Valley at an altitude of 900-1200 metres above sea level, on 19 acres of chalky clay soil. Grapes are hand-picked and conveyed in crates, followed by direct pressing with a pneumatic press, static settling, and fermentation in stainless-steel vats. Bottling is at eight months.

Grape varieties: cinsault 40%, syrah 30%, cabernet sauvignon 30%.
