Tasting Notes

Vintage 2021: Meksassi is an ancient versatile Lebanese grape associated with the Jezzine area where the Karam family have been farming grapes for generations and is often found wild, trained around the huge Jezzine oak trees. Knowing the potential of the Meksassi, we vinified it to create a balanced wine that delivers aromas of green apples, citrus fruit and white flowers of Southern Lebanon. In the mouth, it presents excellent acidity combined with the Meksassi signature mouth feel and aromas of waxed honey and stone fruit, leading to a sustained finish. Meksassi can be drunk young although it has good keeping qualities.
