The name relates to the vineyards that Massaya has developed in the foothills of Mount Lebanon in the Hadath Baalbeck area, overlooking Baalbeck and its Roman temple to Bacchus. The altitude here is more than 1,000 metres above sea level. The soil is chalky clay. The vines are 20 years old on average.The hand-picked grapes are sorted on tables and fully destemmed. The grapes are vinified for 20-30 days in temperature-controlled oak vats, and the wine was matured in oak foudres for 20-22 months before being bottled.
This lebanese GSM will go incredibly well with all sorts of gamey meats.
