Hochar Pere et Fils is sourced from specially selected vineyards near the village of Aana in the Bekaa Valley, characterized by deep, gravelly soil over a limestone base. Low yields (25-30 hectolitres per hectare) result in concentrated wine and the altitude keeps the average yearly temperature at around 25 degrees Celsius, encompassing cold, snowy winters, mild springs and hot summers.
The Hochar of this year is a dense, fruit packed wine showing flavors of plums, mulberries and dates. Red cherry, chocolate and spice on the nose lead to dark fruit flavors and soft, smooth tannins. It is a well-structured and full bodied wine with great length.
