Description

Chasselas

For a long time on the tables in Valais, Fendant has gained in finesse and complexity with the emergence of white specialties. A wine to be enjoyed in good company, synonymous of friendship and sharing, Fendant Etoile is characterised by its flavours of citrus and a touch of acidity giving it a very pleasant taste.

History

Chasselas, which has long been the main variety grown in Switzerland, is at the origin of grapes for everyday wines grown in most wine-producing countries. Called Fendant in Valais – because the grain splits at your fingertips when ripe – it can be found on the Valais hillsides that have particularly favourable cultivation conditions for obtaining dry wines that are easy to drink, fine and pleasant, characterised by their mineral notes.

Vinification

Matured in tanks, the blocking of the malolactic fermentation gives Fendant Etoile a more sustained acidity characterised by aromas of green fruit and citrus fruit.

Gastronomy

Truly from Valais, Fendant Etoile lends itself perfectly as an appetiser, and goes well with raclette, hard cheese and cold cuts.
