Product Details

Hochar 2017 is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has lovely sweet smoke aromas, red cherry, earth and a very characteristic cinnamon note. There is a superb balance to the wine with a depth of flavour that you just want to get into. The grapes for Hochar come from vineyards near the village of Aana which have deep, gravelly soil. The wine generally has a higher Cinsault content which gives it a very different character to Chateau Musar.

Chateau Musar is more than a wine. It is the story of one man’s vision and struggle to succeed through the unlikeliest of odds. The wines are now iconic, enjoy cult status and are as unique as they are brilliant. Serge Hochar famously produced his wines through the civil war (1975-1990) and was perhaps one of the Godfathers of ‘Natural Wine’. Heavily influenced by Bordeaux the wines come from calcareous, gravel and stone soils in Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The vineyards benefit from cool nights and seasonal temperatures which result in long growing seasons. It is a unique terroir that producers a unique range of wines.
