Old Vine Cinsault 2018, Domaine Des Tourelles, Lebanon | 14%
Taking on other Cinsault's throughout the world!
This extraordinary old vine wine comes from 70-year-old vines in the Bekaa valley and is wonderfully unique. Cinsault has been farmed in the Bekaa Valley since the mid-19th century before ceding the way to new imported varieties.
In 2014, Domaine des Tourelles decided to revive this grape by searching out very old Cinsault vines, over 70 years of age, and fermenting the wines in concrete tanks using wild yeasts and nothing else to offer the purest expression of that grape.
The result is a supple wine that beautifully reflects the terroir of the Bekaa Valley, with an aging potential of several years. The nose has an exotic mix of ripe fig, bright red cherry and plum fruit with star anise spice, it’s lifted and pronounced. The palate has beautifully ripe red fruit characters alongside fig and spice notes. The acidity and tannin perfectly balance the generous flavours and leaves a pure, clean finish.
