This wine has gone through some oak ageing in a style reminiscent of Bordeaux Blancs from the 1960s, although slightly warmer. On the palate it is joyfully fresh and expressive: there's no fruit banality, instead a complex array of spices, honey and stoney aromas, followed by a long finish. It seems to be developing faster than the older white grands vins; it stayed in a good shape for five days after opening but did not improve.

Grape Varieties: Obaideh 60% Merwah 40%

Bison grass, elderflower, lime and greengage amke for a complex and lifted nose. The enticing palate displays delicate lychee and conference pear, green almond and a twist of lemon zest . This is as bone dry and saline as Manzanilla and is refreshingly only 12% alcohol. Pure and elegant, with a long, lingering finish.

Musar white is best served at a 'cellar-cool' 15 degrees, rather than chilled.
