  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix white wine, garlic, parsley, and salt in a bowl. Arrange leg of lamb in a large roasting pan; pour white wine mixture evenly over lamb.

Remove from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
