Overview

A blend of 65% Viognier, 20% Chardonnay, 10% Obeidi, and 5% Muscat d’Alexandrie comes from younger vines planted on gravelly clay-limestone soils. Despite the heat of the day, the nights in the Bekaa Valley are quite cool ensuring that the Viognier keeps a level of freshness one doesn’t expect from latitudes this far south. Fermented and aged in tank, this fresh wine captures the spirit of the Mediterranean that can be found in their aromatic white wines from Barcelona to Bekaa.
