Chateau Ksara Cuvée du IIIeme Millenaire
Cabernet-Franc, Petit Verdot, Syrah.
Full bodied and long keeping red wine elaborated from the most noble varieties, issued out of selected grapes from the best and well oriented vineyards.
After severe control of the plots and maturity state, the grapes are manually harvested, stemmed and vatted. The fermentation is accomplished at 28°C with several pumping overs and daily tastings in order to let the grape variety express its best characteristics. Following the 20 to 30 days vatting time, the free-run wine is separated from the press wine to achieve the malolactic fermentation.
Matured in French oak casks (50% new oak) for about 14 months in our underground ageing cellars, then fined and bottled.
A dense deep purple red robe, it has a fruity and subtle nose of raspberry and black current with a vanilla character. In the mouth it has structure, power and length with firm tannins. A rich and very complex wine.
