Pale but bright, this wine has intense fruity aromas with hints of apricots and peaches, that continue through to the juicy fruity palate. The delicious fresh finish is long and scented, with stone fruit and citrus complexity.
Awarded 88 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2016 edition review of Argentina (see blue link below).
Complex and intense, with fresh floral notes and flavours of apricot and pear. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth.
Musar Jeune White was first produced in 2006 with newly planted varieties, Vermentino (40%), Viognier (30%) and Chardonnay (30%) – expressing vibrant fruit flavours of grapes from young Bekaa Valley vines. The 2015 vintage was harvested in August, Chardonnay was the first to arrive at the winery on the 10th with a yield of 10 hl/ha, Viognier followed on the 13th, with 15 hl/ha and Vermentino was picked last on the 26th August with a yield of 15 hl/ha. The vines used for the Musar Jeune White are from our organically certified vineyards and come from 2 different vineyard terroirs: Chardonnay and Vermentino are grown on limestone based soils while the Viognier comes from vineyards with silty soils.
The Chardonnay and Vermentino were particularly expressive in 2015 with exotic fruit aromas of pineapple, bananas, lychees and hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. The Vermentino, native to Sardinia and Corsica adds citrus leaf aromatics, refreshing acidity, good richness and minerality. This is a crisp, well-structured wine of medium body with a long fruity and floral after taste.
Serve gently chilled with grilled seafood, Mediterranean vegetables & Thai cuisine.
Dried apricot and peach aromas abound on the nose. A rich, well balanced palate with gentle integrated oak and ripe stone fruit flavours.
Light gold in colour with fragrant aromas of orange blossom and spice touches. Delicate apricot and white stone fruit character on the palate with a lingering aromatic and fresh finish.

This wine has bristling delicacy, buoyed by a noted mineral edge. Poached pear and croissant flavours add warmth and spice.
