Vieilles Vignes Cinsault is a red wine made from 100% Cinsault grapes grown in the Western Bekaa region of Lebanon at an altitude of 1,050m above sea level. The vines are above 50 years old and have a density of 3,000 vines per hectare. The soil is clay with some limestone, and the grapes are dry farmed and harvested 100% by hand in boxes, with intensive selection in the vineyards.
The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats for 10 days, and malolactic fermentation begins spontaneously. It is then aged in neutral, used French oak barrels for 8 months. It has an alcoholic strength of 13.5% vol.
Vieilles Vignes Cinsault reflects the terroir of the Bekaa Valley, offering a supple and pure expression of the Cinsault grape. The wine has a beautiful aging potential of several years.
