Chateau Ksara - Blanc de L'Observatoire 2013Mango Fruitiness
Available 20th Aug 2016
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.
