Review:
Golden yellow. Banana, tropical fruit and custard cream on the nose and in the mouth. Long, lovely and spicy, this closes with fresh ripe citrus notes (tangerine and orange). The plants come partly from Switzerland and partly from the immediate area. Stays on the skins for three or four hours in temperature-controlled tanks, and ages in stainless steel. About 5,000 bottles a year.

Review:
This is surprisingly tropical for an Alpine wine, with flavors of papaya and guava balanced by notes of salty parmesan rind. The flavors gain brightness with exposure to air as the brisk acidity draws them into a clean, saline finish.
