Tasting notes - Ksara's flagship red, this is a suave wine. Underpinned by the Cabernet Franc it allows the Petit Verdot free reign to delight. A subtle nose of raspberry, blackcurrant and a smooth vanilla character. Bold, balanced and structured on the palate, with firm tannins, this a rich and very complex wine.

Producer Note
Chateau Ksara is Lebanon's oldest winery. Its traditions can be traced back to 1857 when a group of Jesuit monks acquired the property. The Jesuits applied their knowledge of science and agriculture to plant French vines as well as developing two kilometers of Roman caves that proved ideal for the storage of wine. The Jesuits sold the winery to its current owners in 1973. Ksara is now the most modern winery in the region as well as the largest producer in the country. Their annual production is over 2.8 million bottles and they sell their wines in more than 40 countries worldwide. Chateau Ksara is certified ISO 9001 and ISO 2200.00 for its viticulture, production and sales guaranteeing quality and consistency year on year. Vineyard
Ksara's vineyards are located in the central and western Bekaa Valley at an average altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The Bekaa Valley enjoys dry summers and has its own natural water table, courtesy of the melting snow running off the Lebanon and Anti- Lebanon mountain ranges. Cool nights help the vineyards to withstand the heat and drought of the summer. The vines are either double Guyot or cordon trained and are grown in stony soils which are mainly chalk. The vineyard is not irrigated and the standard yield is between 40 and 45 hl/ha. The grapes can be considered to be grown organically because of the very limited used of sulphurbased pesticides. Winemaking
At optimum maturity the grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and transferred to vat. Fermentation took place at 28°C with several pump overs and daily tastings in order to ensure the grape varieties were expressing their true characteristics. Following 20 to 30 days of vatting time, the free-run wine and press wine were separated, to achieve the malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in French oak casks, 50% of which were new for 14 months in the underground cellars, fined and bottled. Tasting Note
Ksara's flagship red, this is a suave wine. Underpinned by the Cabernet Franc it allows the Petit Verdot free reign to delight. A subtle nose of raspberry, blackcurrant and a smooth vanilla character. Bold, balanced and structured on the palate, with firm tannins, this a rich and very complex wine. Serving Suggestion
Serve at 17 to 18°C with roasted red meats, pan-fried steak and rich, flavoursome game dishes.
