St. Michael Eppan Cellars , established in 1907, is a reference point for South Tyrolean enology, with its 340 partners, for a total of over 380 hectares of vineyards. By 1978 the Winery hired the oenologist Hans Terzer who, with his watchwords “quality knows no compromises”, contributed to raise the production quality level. One of the most significant moments was at the end of ’80s when Terzer created the iconic “Sanct Valentin” wines line.
Today we face a new qualitative revolution, always conceived by Terzer, with the creation of three new proposals, all belonging to the new labels TWC (The Wine Collection). The first proposal consists in bottles of Sanct Valentine line wines with over 10 years of aging in glass, uncorked, checked, topped and re-corked, only if they are in an excellent conservation status, guaranteed and signed by the oenologist himself.
This Sauvignon Sanct Valentin 2006 TWC was selected and checked on 20 October 2020. Sauvignon is the winery’s most historical varietal, the one that has given more satisfactions and awards, since from its first vintage. The grapes, coming from vineyards located in San Michele and Appiano Monte, between 450 and 600 meters above sea level, are handpicked, pressed and fermented; then the wine ages on the yeasts until April.
The final result is a straw yellow with greenish reflections wine, with a very evolved nose in which medicinal herbs and flint are the background on which stand out notes of green currant, white peach, gooseberry, lime and elderflower. The mouth shows a perfect three game of balances between flavor, sour and softness, enriched by small peppery sensations, which leads to an almond and iodine finish.
