2015 Vintage: Mild spring temperatures brought on an early start of the vegetation period. The summer months were exceptionally sunny and dry. However, cool nights still allowed for the balanced development of physiological ripeness. Thanks to a cool September, maturation slowed, resulting in an excellent harvest of optimally mature grapes. Our elegant white wines show marked juiciness, depth and manifold aromas; the red wines are fruity, intense and full of character.

Vineyards: Grown in vineyards planted between 300 and 450 meters in calcareous clay and

gravel in the areas of Tramin and Montagna.

Yield: 55 hl/hectare

Subzone: Tramin, Montagna

Winemaking: The grapes for this wine were gently pressed off to steel tanks immediately

after harvest. The grape juice was allowed to ferment at controlled temperature (21°C) without malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes: Tramin is the cradle of Gewürztraminer, and the village claims the best vineyards dedicated to the variety planted around the village the west bank of the Adige valley. Gewürztraminer has a distinctive reddish-yellow colour with green hues when fully mature. The most famous vineyards are in the Tramin subzones of Söll (Sella) and Rungg (Ronchi), where the wine becomes rich and silky in texture, minerally and structured. It is an elegant wine with intense aromas and flavours of Muscat, rose, exotic spice and lychee fruit. Gewürztraminer has become one of the most popular wines produced in Alto Adige.

Food Pairing: The wine pairs well with any spicy Asian dish, fish, white meat, savoury pie, or cheese. Great wine on a hot afternoon if chilled ice-cold!
