Quite rich for a Pinot yet very elegant. Raspberry and fresh cherry with some nice undergrowth and the eatheric lightness of a great Pinot. Soft and velvety mouthfeel with great acidity and light, perfectly polished tannins. Finishes of with a spicy note. What a delight, and it comes from Graubünden, out of all places. — 2 days ago

Sauvignon Blanc from Switzerland? More interesting than I would have expected, not as much acidity as your typical SB, from anywhere, but more complexity, more notes later...
24 Hour Update:
Nose has lime skin, lime flesh, white flowers, under-ripe tangerine, Paper Birch bark and dry earth.
Palate has semi-dried lime, under-ripe peach, wheat grass, granite pebbles, clean mountain stream with a squeeze of lime.
What an interesting wine, never thought Sauvignon Blanc would flourish at the intersection of Switzerland, Germany and France, a great wine experience! — 19 days ago
