SPOTLIGHT ON: Riesling from Chateau Qanafar
From Chateau Qanafar’s small half a hectare vineyard grown at an altitude of 1200m on limestone soils, this single vineyard, single varietal Riesling exhibits an elegant expression of this ancient grape.  On the nose it reveals notes of Asian pear, pineapple and citrus peel.  It excites the palate with a grassy minerality and a cheerful acidity reminiscent of cider apples, quince and bitter citrus.
Known to be the wine expert’s favorite grape, Riesling is believed to be the greatest white grape in the world!

Riesling needs a long and slow ripening season as well as low yields to achieve a perfect balance and truly capture the identity of its terroir.
It takes a special soil to produce such a special wine, and guess what? Lebanon has it!

That’s is why we wanted to showcase this wine today - It’s a wine that makes us proud of our land, our expertise and our passion!
