Hochar Pere et Fils Red


Hochar Père et Fils is sourced from specially selected vineyards near the village of Aana in the Bekaa Valley characterised
by deep, gravelly soil 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
The year started with an impressive amount of rain and snow, with precipitation gradually reducing as we progressed
into the spring, then a sudden rise in temperature mid-April – an excellent start! An additional 52mm of rainfall in May
whilst vines in bloom was perfect for securing a good harvest, though this unusual trend continued into May and June,
only returning to normal in July with warm, dry weather through the Summer period and average temperatures of 35°C.
Grape Varietals
Cinsault 50%, Grenache 40%, Cabernet Sauvignon 10%
The grapes fermented at temperatures ranging between 27-29°C with 15-20 days maceration in cement vats, followed by 6
months in French Nevers oak barrels. The 2018 vintage was blended in the spring of 2020 and bottled in the summer of the
same year.
Tasting Notes
An attractive clear ruby colour and aroma to match, with a subtle peppery spice and ripe red fruits. This continues
through to the palate where sweet-ripened red fruit dominate the glass with a slight savoury note and soft, elegant finish.
