Château Ksara Red Blend 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This light and fruity wine is produced from Sauvignon, Muscat and Clairette, which are separately vatted. Its dedicated Muscat touch is excellent with vegetables, Lebanese mezze and grilled sea fish, provided it is served young and fresh. Ksara Estate lies in the heart of the Bekaa Valley near Baalbeck, where the ruins of the Temple of Bacchus from the Greco-Roman era can be found. It is called Ksara because it was the site of a ksar or fortress at the time of the Crusades. The property was acquired by the Jesuits in 1857 when it was already famed as a vineyard, and they maintained the tradition of winemaking on the estate. Climatic conditions in the Bekaa provide Ksara's vineyards with exceptional advantages. There is almost no rainfall during the growing season and diseases seldom strike the vines. Their grapes can be considered to be grown organically because pesticides and herbicides are not used. Harvesting is done by hand, but there is no need for selection because the grapes achieve full ripeness without fear of rot. Château Ksara is the largest producer in the Lebanon with 334 hectares and 38% of the local production. GRAPES VARIETALS: Sauvignon, Muscat and Clairette. WINE MAKING: Picked in cases and pressed pneumatically as whole grapes,sedimentation, then fermentation at low temperature(18C') without malolactic fermentation. MATURING: To stay light and fruity, this wine is bottled quickly and offered to the customer to be drunk promptly. TASTE: A light and fruity wine, where fullness is given by the Clairette, aroma by the Muscat and the vigorous and fresh taste by the Sauvignon. AGEING: 1 to 2 years. SERVE: With raw vegetables, Lebanese Mezze (appetizers) and fish. serve chilled at 8°-10 C.
