Chateau Musar White 2012
Chateau Musar white is a unique blend of two ancient indigenous grape varieties, Obaideh and Merwah. It is fermented in oak and aged for 9 months before spending a further 7 years aging in the cellar before release. It is s peachy, lemony, honeyed, heady and intoxicating glass of wine which will age for decades.
Chateau Musar is more than a wine. It is the story of one man’s vision and struggle to succeed through the unlikeliest of odds. The wines are now iconic, enjoy cult status and are as unique as they are brilliant. Serge Hochar famously produced his wines through the civil war (1975-1990) and was perhaps one of the Godfathers of ‘Natural Wine’. Heavily influenced by Bordeaux the wines come from calcareous, gravel and stone soils in Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The vineyards benefit from cool nights and seasonal temperatures which result in long growing seasons. It is a unique terroir that producers a unique range of wines.
