Bold and harmonious
Floral and fruity

A frank, harmonious Arvine with an intense floral nose reminiscent of wisteria. On the palate, it showcases lively acidity enveloped in a fruity (citrus) smoothness, leading to a persistent finish with a touch of salinity that is delightfully invigorating.

This vintage pairs wonderfully with oysters, shellfish and aged goat cheeses.

Arvine, also known as Petite Arvine, is an indigenous grape variety from the Valais region. This grape variety emerged naturally through crossbreeding in the vineyards and was subsequently selected by winemakers for cultivation. It was in the 19th century that the name Arvine began to be used to distinguish it from Grosse Arvine, another grape variety belonging to the same family.
