Gebal is made exclusively from locally grown hand-picked and carefully selected Cabernet Franc with a small addition of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown on it's own estate and other vineyards, all gently vinified to Meridiana's exacting standards.
The Wine has a deep, ruby-red colour with a purple rim, complex ripe berry aromas and full-bodied fruit flavours with well-rounded tannins a long lingering finish. The Wine has been carefully aged for 14 months in French oak barriques and for a further 12 months in the bottle.
The name Gebal recalls original name of the Lebanese port city built by Cronus, the first city in Phoenicia and one of the oldest inihabited cities in the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site ike Malta's Capital city, Valletta, which is one of it's various twin cities.
