Terminum Gewürztraminer is a precious composition of fragrances, harvested in the very first days of winter in one of those rare places where nature allows precious noble rot to develop, giving this wine its distinctive character.


"This extremely fine-grained sweet Gewürz wine can duke it out with the best from Alsace. A marvelous sweet wine not to be missed.” Ian D’Agata, Vinous, February 2020


2017 vintage  description:

Mild  temperatures  in  April  led  to  early  bud  break. Favourable weather conditions  in  May  further  accelerated  the  development  of  the  vegetation  but  a  dry  period  in June  slowed  down  shoot  and  grape  growth.  After a  humid  July,  a  warm  August  followed  with many  hours  of  sunshine.  After several  rainy  days  at  the  beginning  of  harvest,  the  autumn weather   developed   favourably   with   considerable   fluctuations   in   temperature. The   grapes profited from a long phase of vegetative growth and were in good health, though berry size was somewhat smaller than average. The white wines are very well balanced, with beautiful fruit, fine acidity  and  juicy  freshness.  Charming elegance and  pleasant  tannin  structure  characterize  the red wines.
