Domaine des Tourelles Merweh & Obeidi [Vegan] (2020)
A blend of two indigenous Lebanese grape varieties that likely trace their lineage back to the Phoenicians, Domaine des Tourelles Merweh & Obeidi Vieilles Vignes is made from very old vines grown in altitude.
Merweh vineyards are spread over the mountains of Bsharreh to the west of the Bekaa valley at 1,400 m altitude. Merweh is a resistant variety which has adapted very well to the Mediterranean mountain climate and ecosystem.
Obeidi vineyards are grown on the hills of Zahlel at 1,100m altitude. Obeidi is a reliable and very resistant grape, considered to be the backbone of the Bekaa valley's vines throughout its winemaking history.
The well-structured blend of these two grapes give the wine its brilliant golden color. The nose has natural aromas of ripened grapes, apple skin and a mix of spices and herbs. mineral and savoury on the palate, the wine shows notes of dried figs and fresh almonds on the finish.
