Ever since, Kingdom of Morocco has been an abundant country that produced wine even though it is dominated by Islamic inhabitants.
The country is not the first place to come in each mind considering wine making. But, in fact, the Kingdom yields an outstanding 40 million bottles of wines annually tagged as the Arab World’s largest wine manufacturer.
Historically, French growers transferred to Morocco because of the healthy growing environment, distinct soil diversity, and a mild weather to grow Euro-centric grenache, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, and sauvignon blanc while learning local varietals like faranah and local carignan as well. Therefore, French winemakers discreetly produced “French” wines in the kingdom making Morocco an important exporter.
One of the famous in Morocco’s wine line-up is the Moroccan White Blend with 60% native faranah with clairette blanche. This wine is a cooling drink that cleanses the palate with a fascinating balance of sweet nectar and bracing chardonnay-like astringency.
Another top of the line is its Red blend edition; made up of 70% cabernet matured less than a year in oak barrels. This wine is a straight-up balanced ripe plum punctuated with faint eucalyptus on the nose and incredible when consumed with chocolate
An artful restraint of fruity depth, tannins, and jammy spiciness that fully blossoms on the palate with rich plum on the nose what makes the Medallion wine popular. Few said that its flavor will remind you the City of Marrakech ambiance.
The cherry, peppery black plum, and aromatic spices permeate which is best for roast meats and the dark wild game makes Syrah wine as one of the distinguished one on the list.
Derived from its component, dried rose, the Moroccan Rose wind has a mixture of 3 red grapes (20% syrah, 60% grenache, 20% cinsault) produces a surprisingly rose color with cranberry and floral that starts on the nose and extends to the palate.
To complete the line-up is the Sauvignon Blanc which is a 100% derivative that endures low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Best taste if pairs with rich cheeses, curried dishes, and cured meats.
Indeed, Kingdom of Morocco completed an arc of wine-growing regions spanning the Mediterranean weaving through Italy, Greece, and Turkey since 2,500 years ago.
