This lush white comes from Morocco, where
winemaking dates back 2,500 years and has
undergone a modern revival.
What You Need To Know
Moroccan wine is more than
a curiosity: Under the liberalizing policies of King Hassan II and
his successor, Mohammed VI, the country has encouraged foreign
investment in Moroccan vineyards and the industry is thriving.
Domaine Ouled Thaleb was found in 1923 by a Belgian financial
group on a high plateau northeast of Casablanca, where seachilled
breezes and altitude temper brutal summer heat. Today
the estate is owned by visionary vintner Brahim Zniber, a central
figure in Morocco’s drive toward high-quality wine. Its cellars are
helmed by Bordeaux-trained winemaker Jacques Poulain. For this
oak-free white, Poulain blends Faranah, an ancient Mediterranean
variety, with Clairette, a crisp, mineral French grape.
Fresh scents of pears
and orange blossom.
Lushly textured, with golden
apple and apricot flavors.
Fish, poultry and pork dishes,
especially with warm spices.
