Description

Château Marsyas Blanc 2015

Château Marsyas Blanc has a beautiful light yellow colour with green reflections. Elegant mineral, citrus and light hints of white fruit aromas. 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.

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 limestone gives the Lebanese terroir its special character and adds something to each grape varietals’ classic aromas. The limestone also forces the roots of the vine to reach deeper into the ground in search of the nutrients it needs. This translates in the mouth as a freshness that balances the natural power of the wines.

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.
