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 religious military campaigns. The property was bought 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 deemed 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. Annual production is over 2 million bottled which are distributed world-wide. Grapes : 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Chardonnay and 20% Semillon Region: Lebanon / Bekaa Valley Maker: James Palge Notes : This wine seduces with its finesse, elegance and floral aroma. On the palate, it is soft, fresh and long lasting. The Chardonnay gives this white wine its finesse and elegance, the Sauvignon its subtle aroma of hazelnuts and exotic fruits and the Semillon its roundness, length and rich taste. Serve : This wine can be served as an aperitif or with delicate fresh fish and shellfish. To be served chilled at 8°C. ABV : 12.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
