Chateau Musar Whites are blended from 2 varietals that are indigenous to Mount Lebanon: Obeideh and Merwah. Both varieties are partly fermented in oak "barriques" where they mature for a further 9 months. They are then blended, bottled and aged for a further 4 years before release. Chateau Musar recommends decanting the white wines before serving.
Elegant starbright gold in the glass with an exquisite bouquet of floral aromas, hints of Muscat and notes of grapefruit on the nose. On the palate, this floral and fruity blend has soft, balanced acidity and spicy undertones
The Chardonnay gives this wine its finesse and elegance, the Sauvignon its subtle aroma of hazelnuts and exotic fruits, and the Semillon provides roundness, length and finesse. The result is an elegant wine with a complex aroma of spice, pineapple and nuts which is followed through on the palate. Medium-bodied, balanced acidity and a medium to long finish.
