Country: Lebanon Region: Bekaa Valley
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon / Cinsault / Carignan / Grenache
Vintage: 2016 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Gaston Hochar Chateau Musar
Thought of as the second wine of the famed Musar estate, Hochar comes from a separate vineyard site and is a lighter, more easy-going style. Partially aged in oak vats for 6-9 months, the wine undergoes a further 2 years' cellaring prior to bottling.
An intense burgundy colour with a complex nose of black fruits backed up by figs, dates and spices. The palate is well integrated with good acidity, fine tannins and a good length.
This wine's great structure bestows it with excellent ageing potential. Partner with saddle of lamb or Moroccan cuisine.
