Production Notes

When Hansjörg Wyss bought this historic property he named it in honor of his mother, Alice Halter. With this reserve blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Tannat, we are honoring her once again with the name Cuvée Alice. This balanced and well-structured wine has aromas of dried strawberries and boysenberries. The palate is vibrant and bright with flavors of raspberry, ripe plum, and cranberry.

Pair with vegetarian dishes, chicken, pork, or wild game.
