Cantina Tramin Gewurztraminer Alto Adige

Wine: Gewurztraminer

Producer: Cantina Tramin

Country: Italy

Region: Alto Adige

Vintage: 2020

Style: White

Blend: Gewurztraminer 100%

ABV: 13.5%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: An intense & complex nose, with aromas of tropical fruit, notes of spice & a layer of minerality, accompanied by the characteristic scent of roses. Creamy with a balancing acidity & a deliciously long finish.

Made by winemaker Will Stűrz, who has been previously nominated “Italian winemaker of the Year” by the prestigious Gambero Rosso & makes some of the best white wines in Italy. The grapes were gently pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks & malolactic conversion did not take place, in order to retain the fresh & vibrant character of the wine.

This region owes its Italian name of “Alto-Adige” to the river Adige that flows through on its way to the Adriatic Sea. The sleepy village of Termeno or Tramin is thought to be the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewurztraminer. The vineyards are made up of clay soils, known for their cooling properties for the vines.

 

Producer Info: Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 & has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting & picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy & cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the “Double Stella” award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious “3 Bicchieri” 20 times & is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.
