Mythopia Schiller Rose

Mythopia Schiller Rose


Country: Switzerland

Region: Valais

Grapes: Pinot Noir, Chasselas

Vintage: 2015

Hans Peter-Schmidt took over the production of these vineyards in Valais, Switzerland in 2004 and began converting the land to organics. The project is all about biodiversity, and all the vineyards are beautifully overgrown and lush. Zero sulphur is used.  

Schiller is an old name for a rose which is blended in the vineyard during the harvest. This particular one is a blend of Pinot Noir and Fendant (Swiss name for Chasselas). A lovely pale pink, it remains almost weightless on the palate and impresses with nuanced flavours of red fruits, flowers and mountain herbs.
