<Originally from the Rhine Valley, Sylvaner is known as Johannisberg in Valais. The second most widely grown white grape variety in the canton, this variety gets its local nickname from Schloss Johannisberg, a Germanic wine castle believed to have produced the first sweet wines. This selection comes from vines that are an average of 45 years old, grown on the rocky terraces of the Chamoson hillside beneath the Haut de Cry massif.


Slow, gentle pressing, an initial low-temperature fermentation and several months’ ageing in vats during which malolactic fermentation takes place (50% with and 50% without fermentation) guarantee maximum fatness and roundness while retaining finesse and freshness of flavour.


Yellow lobe with golden highlights


The floral and fruity bouquet hints at fresh hazelnuts, almonds and white fruits.


The palate is characterised by mineral and toasted almond aromas, with a light note of fresh hazelnuts, a hint of pineapple and a lovely acidity on the finish. The slight bitterness is characteristic for the Chamoson terroir.

Gastronomic pairings

Ideal as an aperitif, Johannisberg goes perfectly with asparagus, fish and soft cheeses.
