The grape variety Heida (also called paien) is the basis for this Swiss wine to 100%. You can find it in most grocery shops in the Basel region. It is an unusual grape variety in Switzerland where it is grown at altitudes up to 1150 metres. It originates from the French Jura region where it is known as Savagnin.
The wine is golden yellow. On the nose I find yellow fruit and flowers. Some wild strawberries, nuts and a bit of roundness (“fat”). The taste follows with the same characteristics in this quite full-bodied wine. A wine to simply enjoy as it is that will make you dream of warm summer days. Price: CHF 12.80 (~10.50 euro).
