Lebanese wine

I noticed Aldi have a 2020 version available of their Wine of Lebanon Bekka Valley Red available at £8.99 in store. Last years 2019 was very nice so I picked up a few of the latest vintage. Interestingly the 2020 is 13.5% and IIRC the 2019 was 14.5%. Was certainly excellent value last year and I wonder if it will have aged well if anyone kept one aside?
Anyone know who bottles it for Aldi?
This came up in a thread a while back. I think the consensus was that it might be Tourelles, but bard to be sure!

See Aldi Specially Selected Lebanese Red which is a thread you started!

My guess is Domaine de Tourelles. I saw it at the store and meant to ask the winemaker but got distracted with other things as one does!

Yes, if it's the same source as the 2017 it's from Chateau Ksara. I reviewed the 2017: Château Ksara, Reserve Red 2017 - wine-pages
 
A Lebanese colleague very kindly gave me a bottle of Atibaia 2014 - does anyone have any knowledge of that producer? Certainly a heavy bottle :)
