This single vineyard Hiša (house) red is a barrel selection of pinot noir with a small addition of cool climate syrah. Made with a hands-off approach in order to express the fruit and the terroir of the vineyard in the glass. The wine shows a dusty cranberry nose with vegetal notes typical of Štajerska pinot noir, and the syrah adds a touch of black and white pepper. The mouthfeel is earthy and a bit chalky, elegance and inviting drinkability are revealed when this medium-body wine is paired with food. Enjoy with stews, goulashes, sausages, roasted red meats, pulled pork, and broth boiled beef with an assortment of vegetables like onions, carrots, tomatoes, leeks, potatoes, celery, and cauliflower.
We are a boutique, family wine cellar Sanctum, based in Slovenian Styria (Štajerska). Their name means something hidden and sacred.
The owner of Sanctum is Mr. Marko Podkubovsek, a worldly man and a wine lover, who believes in local tradition and in hand produced wines. Their vineyards span the steep southern slopes of hills and hillocks over the town Loče, which boast a rich viticulture tradition as grapevines were grown here as early as the 12th century by Carthusian monks.
They are interested in cosmopolitan wines and cuisine. Every year, Sanctum uses knowledge and accuracy to produce even better wine vintages. High mineral content of the marl ground and the delicate aroma of the cool climate shine in these vintages without compromise.
