Musar Jeune Red 2019
Musar Jeune Red vines are from our organically certified vineyards in the western Bekaa Valley and the 2019 vintage was harvested in late August. 2019 was an abnormal weather year in Lebanon with 3 months of continuous rain and snow but this was a welcome relief after successive years of drought. May was mild with some rain and sun and overall this was not a year of intense heat, resulting in red wines of somewhat discreet aromas but concentrated palates with lots of depth and layers of taste. The reds of this year will achieve big maturity with a strong potential for ageing.
The 2019 vintage is a blend of Cinsault, selected from vineyards with varying age of vines (50%), Syrah (35%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%).
The grapes were fermented in concrete vats with temperatures between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius. It was blended in March 2020 and then rested in concrete vats until being bottled in the summer of 2020 and released in the spring of 2021. Musar Jeune Red is unfiltered and made according to our natural wine-making philosophy.
