Formerly known as Rouge du Pays, the Cornalin varietal is mentioned in a notarial deed recorded in the Anniviers registry. Tough to work with and low yielding, it failed to disappear in the XXth century. For the last 20 years its basic qualities have come to the fore again, with it becoming one of the viticulture icons of the Valais canton.


Vinification

Slow maceration over three to four weeks enables the soft extraction of the tannins responsable for the colour and structure of red wine. Six to eight months ageing in vats during which the second fermentation takes place round off the production of this speciality.

Colour

Ruby flecked with violet tinges

Nose

Spicy and fruity bouquet featuring notes of black cherry, blueberry and cloves around which a vanilla top note as elegant as it is discreet.

Palate

Spicy aromas reveal a full bodied palate with rustic notes balanced by silky tannins which gain both in greatness and complexity over time.

Food partners

Cornalin is a marvellous accompaniment to game, grilled meats, wild fowl and hard cheeses.
