Chateau Musar Lebanon White 2003
White:The varieties that collaborate to produce Chteau Musar White are particularly special; obeideh and merwah are indigenous to Mount Lebanon, their history dates back to ancient times. Our own vineyards of white grapes are located at an altitude of 1200m and hence the harvest takes place later than for reds, normally between the 5th and 15th October.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.

Think of this as the proud white counterpart to Château Musar's famed red. A blend of the indigenous whites: Obaideh and Merwah - the latter grape is related to the Bordeaux grape, Sémillon. This is deep in color, round and full of lanolin, honey and white flowers. A dry white with subtle mineral and vanilla on the finish.
