Product Name

These ancient variety white wines improve with age, so we recommend buying the oldest vintage available, especially if the wine is for a tasting.

Ben says of the 2011 (February 2018): The original expectation of gooseberry and green apple is now gone as the years have developed this wine beautifully. A light floral, aromatic nose with hints of apricot, quince paste, beeswax, honeysuckle and a slight citrus feel. In the mouth there is a lovely, gentle bitterness of grapefruit or pomelo and the aromatics are much more prevalent. This is a delightful wine made from an ultra-rare grape.

For its quality and the chance to experience what so few have experienced.
A smooth spicy white with a unique character.
Because it is a beautiful and unusual wine.
This is a very dry wine so it is nice to have something with it - cold meats and cheese nibbles for example.
Resi is the ideal partner for traditional platters of dried meat and cheese (assiette valaisanne), or raclette and fondue dishes.
Tasting Notes
A pale lemon yellow, the wine has a rich bouquet of citrus and herbs. On the palate, smooth, with spice, resin and bitter almonds with good acidity. Good length.
