Valais Mundi couldn't stop at a single great red wine. The team asked themselves how could they best express, the sharp side of the mountains and the cold Alpine winter. A blend, that reminds us of a snowflake in a crystal.
VALAIS MUNDI'S WHITE WINE
ECLAT,Valais Mundi’s white wine was born with the 2014 vintage. A blend of Petite Arvine, the emblematic white grape of Valais and Heida. The conditions in which the wine is made add a touch of originality to the wine’s personality. Aged for nine months in barrels, with a strong personality, ECLAT reveals a fresh liveliness, which expresses the minerality of the Valais terroir.
THE CARNATION FLOWER
A great accomplishment, ELECTUS, expresses freshness and minerality from its Alpine vineyard in Valais. The label reflects complicity and shows the carnations from the tapestry in Mund. The silvery flower with a steel blue tint symbolises the cold glaciers and sharp rocks. The finely drawn petals evoke, simultaneously the complexity and delicacy of the aromas found in this grand white wine.
« 2017, bottled in July, not yet on the market, so a very young wine. Nose of apples and green plums, subtle and maybe a hint of grapefruit. After a minute it opens up....»

“An intense bouquet, notes of citrus and spice with a mineral touch. It has matured very elegantly. Beautiful aromatic expression on the palate, the body has a lively structure which supports perfectly the fruit all the way through to the finish. A wine full of character ... »
Yves Beck, author and critic of Swiss wine
« A bright yellow colour. Elderberry and white flowers are expressed on its open nose. It has a round and full attack. Elegant wood notes dominate the palate, mingled with sensations of yellow fruits and a touch of ripe mirabelle. Neither of the two varieties outdo each other, thus making an ideal blend. This is an impressively well made wine supported well by its adequate acidity. Persistant, lengthy aromas with some warmth and bitterness towards the end. A white wine which will age well from between 5 to 15 years. »
Pierre Thomas, wine writer, taster and journalist, Switzerland
“Pale straw colour with gold lights. This wine has an aroma of appley fruit with some minerality and discreet and well integrated oak. A broad, relatively heavy mouthfeel, silky texture, mineral, almost salty character with fresh acidity and a long clean finish make this an attractive dry fresh wine with some weight a good balance of fruit, oak and acidity. Complex and long with a broad, silky texture. A good food wine.”
Janis Robinson, English author, wine critic and journalist
