Kellerei Kurtatsch - Sonntaler Schiava Alto Adige 2020


Schiava SONNTALER vines are between 60 and 90 years old. Old vines produce inherently lower and therefore higher quality yields. Traditionally, SONNTALER is an assemblage of different Schiava varieties with a large share of Schiava grigia. Ideal terroir and traditional ageing in large Slavonian wooden barrels result in a wine with complex aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries, cherries and redcurrants. Its elegant, lean body is gripping on the palate. Fine-grained tannins give the smooth fruitiness typical for the variety a long, hearty finish.

'The 2019 Schiava Sonntaler Alte Reben shows a pungent and minerally intense bouquet. It evolves over time to reveal pretty bright strawberry and wild herbs with an air of white smoke. It’s juicy and remarkably fresh, as wild berry fruits combine with zesty acids, and inner florals build toward the close. There’s a salty sensation here that slowly tapers off while also making the mouth water for another sip' - Eric Guido, Vinous
