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, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Tannat, we are honoring her once again with the name Cuvée Alice. The 2019 Cuvée Alice showcases aromas of red raspberry and olallieberry, complemented by traces of baking spices. The entry is rich and soft, bursting with red and blue fruits. The weighted mid-palate segues into a clean, balanced finish, making this wine a perfect food pairing wine.

Pair with lamb, venison, charcuterie, and hearty pastas.
