Chateau Ksara Reserve du Couvent 2018 75cl 13.5% ABV
Chateau Ksara Reserve du Couvent, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
Chateau Ksara is Lebanon’s oldest winery, dating back to 1857, and its establishment laid the foundations for the country’s modern wine industry. It is situated in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon’s pre-eminent wine-producing region. Today, while remaining true to its historical roots, Chateau Ksara has embraced modern technology and better-known grape varieties to produce wines with a more international appeal.
Chateau Ksara Reserve du Couvent red is a blend of 40% Syrah, and 30% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The wine has a prominent black cherry flavour which gives way to a more savoury, meaty character. The finish is laced with black pepper and vanilla and the plush, mouth-filling tannins add richness and texture.
A classic for roast beef, and equally welcome at a BBQ.
