Full-bodied whites - MASSAYA WHITE. Beqaa Valley, Lebanon

2018 MASSAYA WHITE. Beqaa Valley, Lebanon

Bin: 208
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Size of bottle: 75cl
Grape Variety: Obeidi (a native varietal) 35%, Clairette 35%, Sauvignon Blanc 15%, Chardonnay 15%.
Producer: From their agent Thorman Hunt:
"Massaya is run by brothers Sami and Ramzi Ghosn in partnership with Frédéric and Daniel Brunier from Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and Dominique Hébrard, formerly from Château Cheval Blanc.
Until recently Massaya’s vineyards have solely been located in the fertile Beqaa Valley, at an altitude of 1000 metres above sea level. At these Tanaïl vineyards the slopes are protected by Mount Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon mountains. Free of frost and disease the Beqaa Valley enjoys a unique climate with long gentle summers, wet winters and an average temperature of 25oC, perfect for viticulture. However, over the last seven years Sami and Ramzi together with Frédéric and Daniel Brunier, have developed Massaya vineyards in the more extreme, mineral areas of the Beqaa valley, moving onto hillside sites to the North East (Ras Baalbek) and North West (Hadath Baalbek), as well as further north of Baalbek."
Old Bridge Rating: Only 13%, so hardly a full-bodied white in the 'typical' sense; but this has gentle ripeness, a slightly viscous texture - as well as plenty of spice and complexity.
