Posted on 15/04/15 at 17.00
This white wine is produced from of 100% Chardonnay grapes, harvested in one of Ksara's highest vineyards (1400 m altitude) and yielding 28Hl/Ha. Fermented in new oak casks on lees. Clear, pale yellow with green tints.
A fine, polished wine with purity of style. 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.
Grape: Chardonnay 100%
Region: Lebanon / Bekaa Valley
Maker: James Palge
Notes: The Oak gives a subtle, almost creamy, vanilla topping to the grape aroma and an extra dimension of delicate spiciness to the taste; at the same time it adds a fine grained, racy definition to the texture. There is a taste of honeyed, peachy fruit.
Serve: Ideal with most crustaceans-lobsters, gray fish, scallops. Baked or steamed fish, fresh salmon or turbot served with a rich sauce. Finally, Caviar calls particularly for this distinguished wine.To be served chilled at 10-12°C.
Suitable for Vegetarians
