Massaya’s Cap Est is a spectacular red wine that proves this ancient region can produce a wine to rival the best in the world. Grapes for the Massaya Cap Est come from a 7 hectare chalky site on the hillsides in the most north-easterly portion of the Beqaa Valley at an altitude of 1,200m, in the Ras Baalbek area. It is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Mourvèdre, which was matured in oak for 22 months and bottled without fining or filtering. A rare jewel that delivers both authenticity and great style and is perfectly suitable for medium to long term ageing. Aromas of mulberry and subtle oak, the palate is meaty and spicy with layers of richly textured red berry and savoury fruits, rich and very fine. A partnership between the brothers Brunier, Dominique Hébrard and the Ghosn family. Perfect to enjoy with rich, slow cooked meats like Braised Lamb Shank in Traditional Spices and mature hard cheeses. VEGAN Friendly.
