Chateau Ksara Blanc de L'Observatoire 2017

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: Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat and Clairette.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and each variety is separately fermented and vatted.

Taste: A light fruity wine showing Muscat-grapefruit character and a fresh flavour.

Serve: Chilled while still young and fresh with Lebanese Mezze, grilled sea fish and vegetarian dishes
