Oeil-de-Perdrix

About this wine

Canton Valais, with its warm and sunny climate, lends itself naturally to rosé wines. The best time to enjoy these is the middle of summer, on a shady terrace, with one of the specialties, Oeil-de-Perdrix, served well chilled (8°C).

Oeil-de-Perdrix is made only from Pinot Noir and has a colour range that runs from slightly golden to a deep rich salmon. This is a true wine, in the sense that it is not a byproduct made from a red wine but a completely separate wine. Its colour depends on the length of time the grape skins remain in contact with the must before fermentation sets in. Classy, velvety, in mouth it is often carried by a fresh liveliness. It is an excellent aperitif wine, or it can be served with light summer meals such as cold dishes, mixed salads, country buffet foods.
