Kellerei-Cantina Tramin Gewurzer Alto Adige Sudtirol 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A light hint of caramel smoke greets the nose followed by green flowers, and green anise seed notes. With air this takes on a rather clear honey aroma. Lightly oily and rich on the palate with a slightly viscous feel. This is full of juicy fruit with just a hint of something tropical, a hint of lychee on the backend leading to a long finish mineral with hints of ash. 90pts

Today the name of Tramin is inextricably linked with the famous Aromatic Traminer wine, or Gewürztraminer. Ancient sources testify that already in the early Middle Ages this was a famous vine-growing and wine-producing area: the Retii (established in these parts around the first millennium BC) were familiar with wine-making, and the Romans probably drew from their experience (it appears that they learned the use of wooden barrels from them). This splendid strip of Alto Adige, consisting today of the towns of Tramin, Egna, Montagna and Ora, has since antiquity provided the ideal requirements to produce great wines. Such requirements are the result of the successful combination of human industry and favourable environmental factors, which include sunny slopes with varying soil types, specific microclimatic zones and an altitude that varies between 250 and 700 meters above sea level. These elements make Tramin a place of harmonious beauty, where the vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting landscape. Read less
