Grauvernatsch Bergwerk DOC 2020 - St. Quirinus

Grauvernatsch is the German name for the grey Schiava grape variety that is part of the family of grapes typical of the South Tyrol region, although it originates in Slavonia, Croatia. For some, the name may refer to its country of origin. For others, however, the name schiava derives from the custom of cultivating these grapes on rows of vines since ancient times, in contrast to what normally happened with other vines cultivated with the classic sapling. The Schiava Grigia has a certain rusticity and a good capacity to adapt to various types of environment. It is a highly productive grape that ripens early and produces wines with an intense ruby colour. Just like this Grauvernatsch Bergwerk AOC from St Quirinus, which also reveals a pleasantly fruity bouquet and good body in the glass. Rather elegant, it has a refreshing acidity that is well balanced by an aroma of cherries, berries and bitter almonds. It is also the perfect red for pairing with fish dishes. For lovers of typical Tyrolean cuisine, this wine is perfect with speck and sliced meats.

Even centuries ago, the monks of the Bavarian monastery of Tegernsee cultivated wine in Pianizza di Sopra, a hamlet of Caldaro on the wine road. The vineyards in the area provided the wine the Benedictines needed for themselves and for their many high-ranking visitors. St. Quirinus, the monastery's patron saint, gives the Sinn family's winery its name today. An organic and biodynamic farm, at San Quirino they are convinced that even a single bunch of grapes can tell the story of its growth and ripening. About the nature of the soil, the animal life in the vineyard, the wind and the weather. And they are also convinced that this information then passes into the wine produced. That is why in the vineyard, and in the cellar, they work with the utmost respect for the environment and delicately. Wherever possible we work by hand, so that we have direct contact with the vines. In the cellar, for example, we work using gravity, renouncing as far as possible the use of pumps. Traditional methods, however, are also combined with innovative and modern technologies. All done with the sole aim of enhancing the rich natural heritage of the estate.
