Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc and Clairette. Big Muscat nose, lots of flowers and fresh, bursting grapes, touches of peach and mango fruitiness.

The palate develops a little more of the herby green crunch, and a very dry, very flavourful finish and has a nice texture.

Ksara Estate lies in the heart of the Bekaa Valley near Baalbeck. 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.

A very elegant wine. Excellent with grilled vegetables, Labanese mezze, or grilled sea fish.
