Disobedience 2018

A wine that comes from special plots of Fendant (the Swiss name for Chasselas) on some of Mythopia’s steepest hills. Why the name? This wine goes against all the rulebooks of wine is ought to be - or as Hans-Peter would say: ‚Disobedience does not always lead to new insights, but new insights are always the result of disobedience.'

This wine comes from one of the Valais’ highest vineyard sites just off the village Ayent and Arbaz. The grapes for this cuvée are 100% Fendant (also more famously known as Chasselas) planted on a bed of slate and schist farmed biodynamically. The vineyard is approximately 45 years of age.

The grapes were partly de-stemmed and ferment in 1000L tanks for a twelve weeks with occasional push downs to slowly extract the tannins in the skins. After pressing the fermenting juice is transferred into small used barrels to age for a minimum of 2 years. Throughout that period there is no topping up or any kind of filtration or fining and all wines at Mythopia are being bottled without the addition of sulphur.

Domaine de Mythopia was started in 2004 when Hans-Peter and Romaine Schmidt bought conventional vineyards in the Valais and began converting them to organic farming. When they first started working the soils, they were completely depleted - a product of years of intensive farming. Hans-Peter immediately set out to bring them back to life - using only natural remedies to nurse the land back to health and encourage biodiversity in his vineyards ...
