Product Notes

Warm and juicy Mediterranean style wine with herbal and red fruit nuances and finishing on a spicy note.

Tasting Notes

Bright, intense ruby red in colour, the exotic fruit aromas combine with notes of delicate notes of spice and liquorice. A mellow wine with supple tannins, leading to a lovely long and spicy finish. Quite delicious.

About the Winery

Located in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon, the Chateau Ksara wine label was established in 1857 by Jesuit Priests. One of the major highlights of this label is that it was the first Lebanese brand to produce dry red wine in the world. Today, these wines are exported to over 40 countries. Even today, this group continues to create wines without compromising its core values of tradition, nobility and modernity.
