Mersel Lebnani Abyad

$28.00

Lebnani wines were created with the intention to show the world the beauty of Lebanon's history and culture. These elements have been incorporated in the design of the bottle. The Lebnani range comes in 1000ml bottles (as opposed to the standard 750ml wine bottle) and is filled with still natural organic wine that is free from additives and that is unfined and unfiltered.

Indigenous Merwah vines, over 150 year old

Ainata, Bekaa Valley (1,700m) - Sauvignon Blanc vines, 12 years old

Best Opened: Best to open at 10 degrees celsius as one would a white wine.

Winemaking Method: Sauvignon Blanc picked first week of August, partially destemmed, partially pressed, free-run juice added back on skins in stainless tanks. Punch down occurs twice daily. It ferments for three weeks at 17 degrees celsius. An additional two weeks of maceration is done.

Merwah is harvested in the first week of October, it goes a slow ferment on skins for three weeks. It is then pressed and blended with the Sauvignon Blanc. The wines go through MLF naturally, they are racked twice before being bottled in late spring.
