Heïda

Formerly only grown in the vineyards of Haut-Valois, the Heïda today is a tribute to Valais in roman times. Heïda and Païen are the Valaisanne Sauvignon Blanc denominations, the varietal behind the success of the famous yellow wine of Jura. It’s a member of the Traminer family.

Vinification

Slow and gentle pressure, an initial fermentation at low temperature and several month’s ageing in vats during which maloactic acid fermentation takes place combine to guarantee maximum fattiness and roundness all while conserving the finesse and freshness of the aromas.

Robe

Golden yellow

Nose

Notes of apple, lemon and dried fruits.

Palate

Lemon, plum and dried fruit notes. A rich and strong wine with a fine, dense, and complex structure and an attractive, discreet acidity.

Food partners

Heïda goes with fish, sea food, alpine-pasture cheeses, and also with traditional Valaisanne dishes, like Raclette cheeses and Valaisanne platters.
