Massaya, “Twilight”, is the brainchild of two dynamic Lebanese brothers who have harnessed the potential of their fabulous terroir to the know-how of two French wine-making dynasties.
Ramzi & Sami Ghosn, Daniel & Frédéric Brunier (Vieux Télégraphe) and Dominique Hébrard (ex Cheval Blanc). This is a partnership between two courageous brothers Ramzi and Sami Ghosn of the Lebanon, and two far-sighted French families.
Massaya celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2018 and it is extraordinary to see what they have achieved. The wines are very good indeed and each vintage just gets better and better!
Ramzi has now settled down as the wine maker. Circumstances during the war of 2006 made it impossible for their French partners to help him so Ramzi and Sami had to learn fast and do it all themselves. These are now fantastic wines and Sami and Ramzi deserve all our support.
The vineyards for this ripe and juicy red are situated between 900 metres and 1,200 metres. A blend of 35% Cinsault, 35% Grenache Noir & 30% Tempranillo.
Vinification is in stainless steel with no wood used.
Fresh and very approachable this is a wine for everyday drinking. The nose is full of warm spice and red fruits with the palate full and rounded, juicy with lovely ripe fruit, spice and hints of pepper. Drink when young to fully enjoy its fruit.
