Not just a museum piece, this is up there with the very best Valaisan whites you will find.

Heida / Traminer / Savagnin / Païen - this is a grape variety you find all over the Alpine regions and further afield. For me it is one of the great white wine varieties, up there with Chardonnay and Riesling, producing great wines on several continents, able to go from sparkling to dessert and with great ageing potential. If you haven't tried the Swiss and Austrian versions, you owe it to yourself to try.

Tasting Notes

A pale yellow, the nose has spicy minerals and exotic scents of ripe fruit and acacia honey. On the palate it is rich and expressive with hints of quince, peach and mirabelle, just a hint of residual sweetness, some peppery spice and a subtle acidity. Served chilled, around 6-8°C.
