Have you ever heard of "Räuschling"? It's a rare grape variety (only 30 ha left) cultivated mainly in the Zürich / Schaffhausen area that almost disappeared years ago. To describe it we could say : not a Chasselas, not a Sauvignon blanc but something in between. Fresh, mineral and kind of fruity. Try it!
Aging: Wooden barrel, Concrete egg, Steel tank
Drink before: 2024
Cheeses, fish, sushis are the natural pairing but we like it a lot for the "Apéritif" with a great guacamole and a nice bread (you know what we mean, right?). It is very accessible yet refined and sooo different.
Must be served between 8-10°C.
They met at school! I mean Changins (Winemaking school) but still. A great history for great wines, with a lot to say. They are the first (and only) wine estate part of the Biodyvin & Demeter Labels. They are well known outside Switzerland (including by world class sommeliers) and they are really engaged in the promotion of very local grapes. How could you not love them ?
