Hochar Père et Fils is sourced from specially selected vineyards near the village of Aana in the Bekaa Valley characterised by deep, gravellysoil over a limestone base. Low yields (25-30 hectolitres per hectare) result in concentrated wines and the altitude keeps the average yearly temperatures around 25° C, encompassing cold, snowy winters, mild springs and hot summers.
The Hochar of this year is a ruby red colour, bright and vibrant. Complex nose of red cherries, sweet smoke and cinnamon spice aromas. Cherry notes, subtle earthy characters on the rich, concentrated palate – it is all at once fruity, fresh and elegant, certainly a food wine with quite a long finish.
