The quintessential indigenous variety, Petite Arvine is emblematic of Valais white wines.
Cosseted by wine-growers, Petite Arvine generally benefits from its vines being those most exposed to the sun.
Petite Arvine is different depending on the affinities of each winemaker, producing wines that are very fruity with exotic citrus notes, sometimes dry, sometimes sweet or even flétri (where the grapes are left to shrivel on the vine).
A little secret about Petite Arvine: with its very special character traits, this variety has a feature that will allow you to recognise it beyond any doubt: it leaves a subtle hint of saltiness on the lips.
