Domaine des Tourelles Merweh & Obeidi Vieilles Vignes


For winemakers in Lebanon, Merweh & Obeidi are the indigenous white varieties of their homeland, both thought to have been originally planted by the Phoenicians.  Merweh provides texture and aromas of almonds, while Obeidi contributes floral and herbal aromatics. Fermented separately, they are then blended and aged in stainless steel. This shows a lovely golden color with aromas of apple skins, pear, herbs and spice. The palate is broad and dense with dried figs, almonds and a fresh minerality on the finish. A remarkable wine of great purity and terroir. These grapes have evolved with the landscape so really do reflect their location.
