- The Wine
A light golden colour. A very typical Petite Arvine nose with citrus and rhubarb. On the palette, a vibrant, fresh attack shifts to smooth citrus flavours with a savoury touch. A long finish with a salty-mineral edge.
Petite Arvine is a traditional Swiss variety grown in Valais and is perhaps the most acclaimed obscure grape variety in the world if we judge by the number of medals in major competitions.
Whole bunches of grapes are gently pressed and the juice racked off and fermented under controlled temperatures. Partial malolactic fermentation adds a creamy edge while preserving the freshness.

Petite Arvine Grand Cru
We had two bottles for Xmas day and are saving the other two for Easter or more likely the next dinner party. Great wine, certainly my current favourite white.
Delicious and different
