The Swiss name for the varietal in this little gem is “Heida”. As the story goes there’s a strong probability that as the vines were shared, passed and re-planted around the Swiss region decades ago, what began as Traminer evolved into what I’ve got under my nose. Lush pear and stone lead the way to a truly remarkably smooth and voluptuous palate. Meat on its bones, and in all the right, graceful ways. The palate leads (and holds) through the lengthy finish that’s balanced beautifully between a sort of creamy presence and juicy acidity.

Very rounded, with a complex mix of floral fruit and minerality. To my mind much better than their “La Borne” Grand Cru Dézaley which seemed a bit hollow in comparison. — 21 days ago

Very fresh and slightly fizzy. Slate and stone with almost no fruit. Quite interesting and unexpected. — 21 days ago
