Silver & Gold Mundus Vini 2019, Kind of a virtual combination of a (Spanish) Rioja & Bierzo but from North East Portugal, where they
are known as Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and Jaen (Mencia). Young to drink wine with 12mnd aging on stainless steel tank. The high altitude at 700m above sea level preserves freshness; the soil consisting of granite and schist/slate gives elegant wines with refined, discreet minerality and fruity aromas of berries and herbs. Pleasant mouth-filling fruity elegance and discreet minerality. Berry spice and long finish
Pouring temperature: 14 - 16°C.
Serve with: Starters; red meat, lamb, pork; BBQ; Mediterranean cuisine/pasta/pasta; hard cheese

Vernatsch/ Schiava is a quirky red wine. Very fragrant with enough 'body' to handle many a hearty dish. Yet it is not a "block buster. Many a lover experiences it as a not too heavy, fruit-rich red wine, while the wine is definitely not lacking in concentration. Winemaker Hans Terzer of St. Michael Eppan makes a perfect example of Vernatsch. Fragrant, elegant and spicy without being tough. A delicious, quirky glass. A harmonious silky smooth pleasantly fruity and juicy Schiava (Vernatsch) with hints of violet cherry and bitter almond, from the Sattel vineyard on Lake Caldaro. Only the best and ripest grapes are selected manually (scelto)
Pouring temperature: 14 - 16 °C
Serve with: Cheese, charcuterie calf's head; not too heavy fish dishes e.g. red mullet with sauce becasse, Cepes al bordelaise (ceps with parsley and anchoiade)
