A juicy and refreshing wine from the Lebanon; white fruits and a flinty minerality are framed by a delicate floral character. Super tang on the finish. Wash down a salad or shellfish with this, or enjoy on it's own.

Assyrtiko 91%, Sauvignon Blanc 5%, Viognier 4%

Passion and heritage has been passed down through the Bou Sleiman family for four generations. When Joseph Bou Sleiman took over the reins at Château Oumsiyat, he blended respect for local tradition with modern techniques to craft contemporary wines. A passionate vine grower, Joseph also built a modern winery in the village of Mtein, where he creates wines that are a fusion of Old World and New World. The grapes are grown in the 78 hectare vineyard, situated at over 1,000 metres elevation in the beautiful Bekaa Valley, between Mount Lebanon to the west and the Anti-Lebanon Mountains to the east. The altitude, microclimate and soils combine in this ancient terroir to produce fresh wines with a very Mediterranean feel.
