English vermouth, Lebanese wine and pink Tequila on pour at The Wine & Spirits Show

Château Ksara Merwah

Lebanese winery Château Ksara will be exhibiting its new white wine that has been made with the local variety Merwah, the first time the grape has been used to make a single variety table wine.

A very old grape that is, according to Lebanese wine expert, Michael Karam, as close to it gets to a “national variety”.

With an alcohol content of 12.5% and with a period of one month aged on fine lees and no oak treatment, the wine has a somewhat oily, textured feel on the palate but this is offset by a rather Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon briskness and fruit profile.
