South Tyrolean Gewürztraminer DOC
Wine growing area: The grapes for our Gewürztraminer ripen on trellises (Guyot system) in their original place of cultivation, Tramin, as well as in Montan and Kurtatsch. The vines grow at an altitude of 250 – 490 metres in gravel, clay and porphyry soils.
Vinification: The Gewürztraminer grapes are delivered to the winery immediately after harvesting in 220 kg crates. They are gently crushed and cold macerated for a few hours until being fermented at a constant temperature of 20°C. This gives the wine its unique taste and distinctive range of flavours.
Harvest and Yield: The sun-ripened Gewürztraminer grapes are carefully picked by hand from mid September until mid October. From this harvest, 70 hectolitres of wine is produced per hectare.
Reccomended with: This wine is ideal as an aperitif and is a perfect accompaniment to spicy starters, seafood, Asian cuisine, pates, terrines and gorgonzola cheese.
