Description

Coloz is, for now, the only Swiss wine we stock at The Wine Country. The wines tend to be expensive for what they are and with so many bright and slurpable wines from neighboring Savoie, at far more desirable prices, we kind of let the fact that we don’t have a Swiss wine section just be. That was until I tasted this wicked cool white from the Coloz family. Made from Savagnin, called Heida-Paien in the local dialect, from the Les Bernunes vineyard which was the first vineyard noted in historical records of the region. The Coloz family practices “Protection Intgree” which focuses on healthy soils and protecting the striking beauty of the region. Les Bernunes is a vineyard full of stones in various sizes over thin top soil which drives the vines deep through those stony layers, giving this wine a electric mineral aroma and flavor. Wild herbs, citrus, bruised pears and chilly forest floor explode from the glass. Layered, very complex and unlike most other wine you are going to find. Serve with salty cow and sheep’s milk cheeses.

The Wine Country.
