Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).

Description

An emblematic wine of the Domaine, this Fendant perfectly illustrates the shale terroir of the hillsides of the Vétroz vineyard. This is a wine to put away in the cellar for a few years. Structure, freshness and minerality are the three pillars that make up this wine. It features an intense pale yellow dress with grey highlights. The breadth in the mouth is balanced by a beautiful acid frame punctuated by mineral notes. A ghoulish and racy Fendant; a Fendant of terroir.
