Château Ksara, founded in the Bekaa Valley in 1857 by Jesuit priests, is Lebanon’s oldest ‘modern’ winery, advancing Lebanon’s rich winemaking heritage for over 150 years and laying the foundations of the today’s vibrant wine industry.
The Jesuits knew what the terroir could deliver. With its clay and limestone soil, hot summer days and cool nights, generous rainfall and snow in winter, and with vineyards planted at between 1,000 – 1,800 meters, the Bekaa Valley is perfect for producing wines with freshness, balance complexity.
Hand-picked and pressed in whole bunches. Fermentation at 18°C. The Chardonnay undergoes both fermentations in oak and then spends a further two months in the barrel before being blended with the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
A truly versatile, flavoursome and complex wine to delight the palate, one that can be served as an aperitif or with food. Balanced, with crisp acidity, lush fruit and a rounded body, the oak-aged Chardonnay gives structure, finesse and elegance, while the Sauvignon delivers freshness, and the Semillon provides the generous and rich mouth-feel.
