Eva – Le Viognier de Qanafar
Eva is Chateau Qanafar's premium white wine. A 100% Viognier that is fermented and aged for 12 months in French oak, it defies all expectations of a typical Viognier wine. Eva is beautifully elegant, with a pleasant fruitiness married to highly floral notes, mineral, nutty flavors and a nippy acidity. Our particular selection of oak barrels gives Eva a smokiness and grilled bread character.
Best served between 10 and 12°C.
Pairs well with creamy and buttery cheeses, foie gras, chicken and lamb dishes with fruits, spicy and creamy curries, and rich shellfish dishes.
Château Qanafar is a small, family-owned winery located on the gently rolling hills at the base of the Barouk mountain in Khirbet Qanafar, West Bekaa. We started our journey with founder George Naim in 2005.Our 17 hectares of vineyards are located at 1200m above sea level, allowing a dramatic swing in temperature variation between night and day. This means our grapes naturally maintain a wonderful balance between flavor and sugar levels while retaining a crisp acidity. The resulting wine is well-structured, rich and complex with intense flavor of fruit. The vineyard soil, consisting primarily of limestone, is ideally suited for growing quality grapes. We follow a simple doctrine: grow great fruit and respect it from berry to bottle. The winemaker’s role is to shepherd the quality of the fruit into the bottle, preserving the natural flavors and aromas rather than trying to «create» a wine. Our wines embrace the palate to produce a pleasurable and memorable experience.
