Notes: A delicate dry white wine with pronounced minerality made from Obeidi, a native grape variety of Lebanon, sourced from several old vineyards in the Zahle region. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months, it offers aromas of guava, anise, thyme, cedar, orange peel, orange blossom and lavender and flavors of white peach, pomelo, banana and almond.

Label: Near Eastern mosaic to indicate the origin of the wine: Lebanon, the colors are based on the aromatic profile of the grape variety, and the wood texture indicates that the wine has been oaked. Designed by Tarek Atrissi.
