Special notes

Fendant is probably the best known white wine from the Valais. The Domherrenwein is part of the Golden Capsule range of Provins wines. The law dictates a minimum of 68° Oechsle. Provins is a cooperative, founded in 1930, following a difficult wine producing situation at the time. Wine producers first got together to create a company to produce and store their products. In a second stage, theycreated a structure to market their products. Provins is now the largest producer of Swiss wines, representing about 23% of the production in Valais and 10% of the Swiss production overall. More than 4,400 members entrust their harvest to the cooperative in the amount of about 10,000,000 kilos of grapes every year.

    Für einen Provins-Fendant ganz ordentlich. Zum Fondue leider gänzlich ungeeignet, da zuwenig Säure. Anstelle der säurearmen Chasselas-Sorte sollte man zur Käsesuppe eher einen Petit Arvine oder Heida nehmen! Kenner wählen sogar Riesling oder Grünen Veltliner!

    Wir trinken zu Fondue und Raclette am liebsten diesen, da er genügend Säure hat ohne sauer zu sein.

    Guter Fendant - Guter korrekter Chasselas, ob Aktion oder voller Preis. Ein vergleichbarer (Qualität) Vaudois kostet glatt 25% mehr.

    Sortentypischer Fendant - Ausgewogener, vollmundiger Fendant. Qualitativ ausgewogen und seinen Preis wert!
