The Wine

Details

Humagne Rouge is a traditional Swiss variety grown in Valais and is the most interesting of Switzerland's indigenous red varieties.

A scintillating red colour with good clarity. A complex nose with hints of leather, elderflower and terra cotta. The palate is supple and fruity with soft smooth, tannins, a lovely balance, finely poised between elegance and rusticity, leading to a lingering finish.

The grapes undergo cold maceration for ten days prior to punched cap fermentation. Matured in stainless steel for 12 months.

Ben says of the 2012 (February 2018): The leather notes have been given a real mature boost of richness, notes of raspberry stems, and a hint of smokiness. Dark stewed fruits dominate the flavour but there are lighter notes of raspberry. This is a big wine, despite a lack of any oak. The grape gives such great aromas and flavours and I know many who will love not having any vanilla! Sophistication meets rustic in a perfect blend.
