66% Syrah and 34% Caladoc. This is what we can call a wine rosé “à la Provence”. Its marble pink robe with peony reflections reveal an intense bouquet of gooseberry and vine leaves. Its suave, fruity, crispy and delicate palate will be a “coup de folie” for anyone passionate about authentic rosé wines. Harvest Manual, in crates of 18kg, with a temperature control below 18 0C. A blend of 66% Syrah and 34% Caladoc, this pale blush-colored rosé has a nose of peach, grapefruit and freesia that lead to flavors of strawberry, tart cherry, almond blossom and nutmeg. There’s a pleasing balance of creaminess and acidity. 89 Pts Wine Enthusiast
The vision behind IXSIR is unique: reveal the best terroirs of Lebanon, some forgotten long since, while respecting sustainable development and integrated viticulture. IXSIR cultivates grapes in areas carefully chosen for their high quality potential, in regions as diverse as Lebanon itself, stretching from Batroun in the North to Jezzine in the South, and nestling beside the most beautiful hillsides of the Bekaa. Winemaking and aging take place in a central winery located on the hills of Batroun, giving birth to unique wines, the perfect marriage between the subtle and the complex. The name IXSIR derives from “Iksir”, the original Arabic word for “Elixir”, a word common to many languages, defining the purest form of all substances, a secret potion that grants eternal youth and love. IXSIR is the fruition of a partnership between friends who share the same passion for wine, Lebanon, and the dream of associating the name of a prominent wine to their fatherland.
