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.
Schiava SONNTALER unites our oldest vineyards. The vines are between 60 and 90 years old.
Old vines produce inherently lower and therefore higher quality yields.
The grapes are harvested by hand.
Traditionally, SONNTALER is an assemblage of different Schiava varieties with a large share of Schiava grigia.
Temperature controlled fermentation of the must in stainless steel tanks, malolactic fermentation and ageing in large oak barrels
