Tasting Notes

The Hochar Pere et Fils is sourced from a single vineyard planted over 50 years ago at 1,000 metres above sea level near the village of Aana in the Bekaa Valley, characterised by deep, gravelly soil over a limestone base.

Low yields (25-30 hectolitres per hectare) result in concentrated, complex wines and the altitude keeps the average yearly temperature at around 25 degrees Celsius, encom- passing snowy winters, mild springs and hot summers.

As with all vintages of Hochar Père et Fils, the blend is comprised mostly of Cinsault, (50%), Grenache (30%) with Carignan (10%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

The 2011 vintage is a bright red ‘pinot’ colour with a smoky nose of figs, plums, dried cranberries and rich Genoa cake. There are also aromas of leather, cigar box, tea leaves and spices. The palate is enriched with soft stone fruits, plums, prunes, dates and figs with layers of sweet spices such as cardamom. This wine is well balanced and elegant with soft velvety integrated tannins.
