More about this wine

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.

A complex nose with hints of leather, elderflower and terra cotta.
