It is no secret that I love Savagnin. Savagnin Blanc (Heida, Païen, Traminer) is one of the great white grapes, so diverse and versatile.

More about this wine
This is the traditional Swiss style at its best - crisp, crystalline, rich and dry, from one of the best.
This is the one of Robert's wines I chose to take home.
Ben says (February 2017): Glory be! Along with Petite Arvine, Heida is one of the great Swiss grapes that always please and often astonish. Whereas I find Petite Arvine expresses itself with fruit, for me Heida is all about the grass, hay, herbs and wild flowers that you can find in a Swiss meadow.
The wine is a beautifully clear and clean green with tones of burnished bronze, a joy to admire. The nose is, as already mentioned, a breath of mountain meadow with a hint of honey. In the mouth, you discover a wonderfully dry wine. The grass and hay continues with some apricot and green apple. The finish is long and the flavours continue to intermingle throughout. This is a wonderfully crafted wine from a wonderful craftsman. We are so lucky to have Robert's wines on our website.
