Château Kefraya la Dame Blanche 2014

External Review:

Rubingranatrot, sehr dicht. Bordeaux ähnliches Nasenbild, an rote Kirschen und Pflaumen erinnernd, ergänzt durch eine feine Würze und dezente Ledernoten. Charaktervolles Gaumenbild, Himbeerkonfitüre und Heidelbeeren, ein Hauch schwarzer Pfeffer und Melasse, auch etwas Pain d’épices; kompakt und von reicher Struktur, anhaltend im Abgang.

Located in the heart of Lebanon in the Bekaa Valley, Château Kefraya extends its land of 300 acres on the foothills of Mount Barouk, 20 km south of the town of Chtaura. Both the vineyard planted in a series of terraces and slopes often steep at an altitude of 950 to 1100 meters on clay-limestone and rocky soils, associated with exceptional sunshine without precipitation during six to seven months a year – together with the winery, located in the middle of the domain, endowed with state-of-the-art equipment, allowing manually harvested grapes to be led, stemmed, fermented and pressed with great care, have enabled the development of a wine with character and authenticity particular to Château Kefraya. Starting from scratch, an image was built, which in such a case, would require decades if not centuries. Hence, Château Kefraya's vineyards are only fifty years old - on average - and its cellar just thirty years of age! These wines have meanwhile gained their nobility, both in Lebanon and abroad. The quality of these products has been recognized and certified by the number and prestigious awards obtained in international blind tasting competitions. Gold, silver and bronze medals, not to mention trophies, laudatory articles in newspapers and specialized magazines including the most famous of them published by the "wine pope" Robert Parker who entitled his text "An amazing accomplishment in Lebanon", have crowned the efforts undertaken since 1951 by breaking the fallow land, blasting the infested rocks in the soil which has never produced anything since the creation and the plantation of the largest vineyard in Lebanon.

Color Dark cherry, the nose tilts toward toasted bread, the texture is present and carries on all the way with perhaps a dry finish that will soften up with time, interesting to follow.

When you think of wines from Lebanon, Château Kefraya should always come to mind. This cuvée is a red blend of French varieties: Cabernet, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Grenache.

Dichtes Rubinrot. Reife Kirschen und Himbeeren in der fein parfümierten Nase, etwas Zedernholz dahinter, kombiniert mit einer dezenten Würze und etwas Ledernoten. Warmes, reiffruchtiges Bouquet, von roten und schwarzen Beeren geprägt, eine schöne Lakritzenote auch; insgesamt sehr saftig und druckvoll, mit viel Charakter, leicht austrocknendes, kräftiges Finale.

A rich, spicy red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache, Château Kefraya's wines are widely appreciated at home base and now gracing our shelves.

A Lebanese white wine that's fruity with aromas of peaches and dried apricots. Dry yet fruit forward. Works wonders with Lebanese cuisine: sautéed dandelion greens, tabouli, hummus, olives and hard cheeses.
