Tasting Notes: Golden color, almost amber. Distinct smoky and dried fruit hints, apricot, fig and dates with a hint of almond. Savory and fresh in the mouth, with an almost oily fullness and a salty finish.

Tasting Notes: Golden yellow color with greenish and amber reflections, the nose hints of pear cider, the palate is quite dry, beautiful acidic structure, scents of herbs, medium-long finish, but powerful.
Tasting Notes: Like "Je sais que tu danses", maceration of Mourvedre in the juice of Ugni Blanc has made for a dark, nuanced and spiced rosé with a cleansing acidity and minerality that keeps you coming back for more.
Tasting Notes: The perfect wine for lazy weekend afternoons. Franz & Christine wanted to make a “house wine” that involved all different vineyards and varieties that they farm. This includes the recently (2015) planted hybrid, disease resistant varieties such as Muscaris, Souvignier Gris, Bronner and a Swiss clone of Cabernet. Catsilver refers to the shining silica stones that are found throughout their vineyards. All the white grapes undergo a maceration on the skins and the red grapes are directly pressed, before all being aged in used oak barrels for eight months.
Tasting Notes: Initially marked by smokey gun flint and burnt tyre reduction. An aromatic orange is joined by honey and pineapple. A hint of vegetal gooseberry is another element that is a typical of Chardonnay. Starts off with a pinch of salt, apple and lime. The acidity cuts through nicely, until richer fruits like apricot and orange come forward mid-palate. The overall impression is that of a margarita with subtle hints of umami.
Tasting Notes: Lobster pink with beautiful opalescence. Yeast deposit clearly visible at the bottom of the bottle. The nose opens with hints of yeast and bakery and then opens up to fruity aromas of cherry, wild strawberries, white currants and rose petals, and closes with a mineral note. The taste is dry with a very delicate but persistent bubble, fresh and savoury with good persistence.
Tasting Notes: Limpid, light ruby red colour, with the presence of small sediments due to the absence of filtration. Fairly consistent in the glass, with discreet softness. The nose is pretty intense and with a pleasing complexity. Aromas of cherry schnapps, acetone, poison ivy, earth, white pepper and some tobacco. In the mouth it is moderately dry, with a nice alcoholic note and fresh tannins.
Tasting Notes: A full year lasted the carbonic maceration of this Fendant. It was then aged for four years in larch barrels before being bottled unfiltered. On the nose, the wine is reminiscent of a walk in the woods, pine needles, ethereal notes, along with ripe fruit. Vibrant and energetic on the palate.

Tasting Notes: Rosé; fine and persistent froth. The nose is expressed with hints of apricot, raspberry and apple and notes of pastry and yeast. On the palate it is crisp, pleasingly sapid and well balanced.

Tasting Notes: Wine with a very pronounced deep ruby color, nice reflection, completely clear on the edge. Fluttering and gentle tones of red berries where a ripe raspberry stands out, a wild strawberry with delicate hidden floral scents. On the palate elegant reflections of juicy, fruity characters with a lovely harmony of freshness and softness. It has a moderate body with nice flexibility, soft and pliant tannins, at the end of sweet texture and softness in which fruitiness, freshness and moderate fullness are integrated. It is pleasantly stable and drinkable with crispness. Serve it with roast lamb, barbecue, pasta with meat and lightly cooked home-style dishes.
