Stephen Quinn travels the world for his weekly wine column and hopes to convey the magic of the grape in ways that anyone can understand.Ksara has the largest output of any Lebanese vineyard, producing almost 3 million bottles a year.A fungus grows in the humidity that helps to preserve wine.It is a blend of 50 percent sauvignon blanc, 30 percent semillon and 20 percent chardonnay, and is the best-selling white in Lebanon.Another memorable wine was the 2012 Gris de Gris, a blend of carignan and grenache gris. The flagship wine is the Le Souverain, a 50:50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and arinarnoa. A wine to keep for decades for special occasions.All wines are blends.The 2007 red is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault.Musar reds have become cult wines.For example, the 1977 Chateau Musar red sold for 3.99 pounds a bottle when released in the United Kingdom in 1984 .Limited space means that I am unable to mention other fine wines from estates such as Karam Winery, Chateau Nakad, Chateau Florentine and Ixsir. Lebanese wine exudes quality.
