Producer Note
Passion and heritage has been passed down through the Bou Sleiman family for four
generations. When Joseph Bou Sleiman took over the reins at Château Oumsiyat, he
blended respect for local tradition with modern techniques to craft contemporary
wines. A passionate vine grower, Joseph also built a modern winery in the village of
Mtein, where he creates wines that are a fusion of Old World and New World. The
grapes are grown in the 78 hectare vineyard, situated at over 1,000 metres elevation
in the beautiful Bekaa Valley, between Mount Lebanon to the west and the AntiLebanon Mountains to the east. The altitude, microclimate and soils combine in this
ancient terroir to produce fresh wines with a very Mediterranean “feel.”


Vineyard
The vines are planted at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level, where
Mediterranean climate sees warm days tempered by cooler nights. The summer
diurnal temperature difference is 20°C, which encourages an extended ripening
period, concentrating the flavours and aromatic complexity in the berries, while
retaining balancing acidity from the cool nights. The soil is calcareous clay which is a
cool soil that has good water retention properties to nourish the vines during the hot,
dry summers. Due to its pH, calcareous clay soils tend to produce refreshing wines,
which encourages further balance to the ripeness of fruit. The vines are cane pruned
and are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare. The vineyard is cultivated
with respect for the environment and the grapes are hand-harvested at optimal
maturity.


Winemaking
This rosé was produced using the saignée method; after a short maceration on the
skins the juice was ‘bled’ off, imparting the delicate salmon pink colour. The must
was racked and fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts
at controlled temperatures of 14 to 16°C. The wine did not go through malolactic
fermentation and was made without any oak influence resulting in this fresh and
aromatic rosé.


Tasting Note
A delicately coloured rosé with notes wild red berried fruit complemented by subtle
floral notes. Stylish with dry palate through a refreshing finish.
