Chateau Kefraya Rouge 2014
Regular price MYR 200.00
Region: Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
Grape Variety: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre
After a series of 20 labels featuring the canvas of Lebanese female artists, Château Kefraya designs a new bottle that captures the heritage of its very first historical wine. 30 year-old vines spread over 22 hand-harvested hectares give birth to this wine of character. The best grapes of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre are aged in oak barrels for 18 to 24 months. Combining power and elegance with silky tannins, the Château Kefraya is characterized by subtle notes of cherry, spices, leather and vanilla. Enjoyable young, it will age favorably for a decade or more.
About The Winery
The vineyard spreads over 300 hectares of terraced slopes, 1000 meters above the Mediterranean Sea, on the foothills of Mount Barouk in the Bekaa Valley.
Clay-limestone, clay-chalk as well as sandy and gravelly soils compose a real mosaic of terroirs. The vines enjoy an exceptional sun exposure with no irrigation. They are mainly trellised with a planting density of 4000 vines per hectare and an average yield limited to 35 hectoliters per hectare.
In addition to the diversity of soil, Château Kefraya uses a wide and exciting range of grape varieties in its blends, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier as well as more unusual varieties such as Carménère, Marselan and Muscat à Petits Grains.
A sustainable wine-growing policy allows the vines to flourish, while respecting the terroir’s expression. Significant variations in temperatures between day and night ensure a perfect ripening of the grapes and optimal harvest conditions.
