Description

Hochar Pere et Fils is sourced from a single vineyard in the Western Bekaa Valley, near the village of Aana, characterised by deep, gravelly soil over a limestone base. Yields are low, 20-25 hectolitres per hectare, which results in concentrated full flavoured juice. Record rainfall in the winter in our vineyards (exceeding 1000mm against a normal average of 400 to 600mm) was a welcome relief this year after several years of drought. Everything was later as a result – flowering, opening of the buds, even the harvest started 15 days late but it seems
that rainy years enhance fermentation as 2019 was a perfect year for the reds.

The grapes fermented at temperatures ranging between 27-29 C with 15 to 20 days maceration in cement vats, followed by 6 months in French Nevers oak barrels. The 2019 vintage was blended in the winter of 2021 and bottled during the following summer of the same year.
