Few realize that Alto Adige is the spiritual home of Gewürztraminer (which translates as “spice carrier” for its spicy, exotic notes) and it has been a hallmark offering at Tramin since it was founded more than one hundred years ago. Today, the grapes are sourced from vineyards in Montagna and Termeno, where this grape is known to produce wines of particularly high caliber.

Tasting Notes

Rich straw-yellow with scents of peach and freshly cut grass over more subtle hints of white spices. The wine is refreshing and clean with balanced acidity and weighty texture. On the palate, juicy tropical flavors of lychee and starfruits complement a delicately floral finish.

Food Pairing

This wine is well suited for  summer fish dishes, such as swordfish in cucumber-dill sauces or mahi-mahi steaks with mango chutneys.
