Merweh and Obeidi, two indigenous grape varietals that likely trace their lineage back to the Phoenicians. By blending them, Domaine des Tourelles has created a generous and mineral white wine that offers a sensorial voyage to Lebanon.
Theses grapes’ centuries-old vineyards range from the fertile Bekaa plateau to the Bsharreh mountains above the Qadisha (Holy Valley) at the feet of the millennial cedars.

Serving: Viellies Vignes Merweh & Obeidi is best served chilled at a temperature between 10-12°C (50-54°F).

Pairing: Its mineral and savory notes make it a great match for seafood, such as grilled shrimp or scallops, as well as light salads and vegetable dishes. It also pairs well with grilled chicken and pork, and can stand up to bold flavors like Moroccan or Lebanese spiced dishes. Additionally, the wine’s dried fig and almond notes on the finish make it a great match for nutty and fruity desserts, such as a cheese plate with dried fruits and nuts.

Tasting note: It has a complex nose with natural aromas of ripened grapes, apple skin, and a mix of spices and herbs. On the palate, it is mineral and savory, with a medium body and good acidity.
