Merwah was dominant in 2003, as if it were compensating for its absence due to a hailstorm in 2002, when no Musar White was produced. The defining characteristics are a deeper colour than usual, with greater intensity of aroma and flavour.
Beautiful straw gold in appearance, this mature Musar white displays aromas of orange peel, sweet spice and stewed pears. The palate is rich and generous with almond and citrus fruit flavours – Simon Hoggart, The Spectator, April 2009
Rich with roasted hazelnuts and a high-toned citrus aroma, this Lebanese white is deliberately oxidized to produce a dry, savoury wine that’s intriguing on the nose and palate. While glimmers of poached pear and lemon peek through, fruit is clearly secondary to the layers of nutty, yeasty, oily flavours that dominate the palate – Anna Lee C. Iĳima, Wine Enthusiast, September 2011
Mature-tasting, with fino Sherry flavours of sea salt, iodine and marzipan – Wine Spectator, 2011
