Château Marsyas Blanc 2015
Grape Varietals & Region: Comprises a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit for this wine comes from Château Marsys estate vineyards in the southern part fo the Bekaa Valley. The terroir is a plateau that extends between Mount Lebanon and mountains known as Anti-Lebanon, at an altitude that 900 metres. Geologists understand the Bekaa as an alluvial plain cradled between two mountains. The soil is red with a clay-limestone bedrock, which suits the vines well.

The dry palate has a fresh acidity and smooth structure. Delivers zesty lemon citrus and fresh white peach flavours with a beautiful element of chalky minerality. Closes in a persistent mineral finish.
Winemaking Process: Picking at Château Marsyas is done by hand and the grapes arrive at the winery in small crates. First round of sorting in the vineyard, then a second round of sorting on arrival at the winery. Vinification in stainless steel, with 3 months of lees contact and no oak ageing
