Château Ksara Merwah 2017
Château Ksara is Lebanon's oldest and largest winery, is the first to release a wine made entirely from this centuries-old, indigenous white grape variety (it's been suggested that it could be a local clone of Sémillon but without DNA testing there's no way of knowing). Ksara's Merwah vines are 60 years old, on pre-phylloxera rootstock and in a terraced vineyard lying at 1500m in the north of the country in the village of Douma. Unoaked, fresh, delicately floral, citrus, spice and almond patisserie aromas, preserved lemon and melon flavours and a supple, rounded texture.
