Huge apple blossom and light pollen notes greet the nose. In the mouth this is kind of dense and chewy with a nice hit of dry extract on the palate. Powerfully rich yet well delineated, this offers up layered intensely mineral apple flavors with a late arriving touch of bitter melon. The moderately long finish on the other hand is totally salty seashell notes. Lots going on here. 91pts

Deep and ripe on the nose with waxy, smoky, exotic honeyed fruit paired with a floral bouquet, apricot, and dried lemon. Round, powerful, and lightly viscous in the mouth there certainly is a lot going on here. This has an amazingly creamy texture, a clean dry, finish showing no phenolic bitterness, and a beautiful sense of ripeness. This is pretty amazing, so fresh and perfumed in the mouth with the texture of cashmere and a long, spicy finish. 92pts

Herbal lemon aroma with fresh cut grass, flowers, and stone fruit. Thin sharp body with peach on the finish.

Slight green hue. Wonderfully refreshing mouthfeel with a rush of tropical fruits but not overwhelming. Hints of lemon, grass, and minerals. Wonderful summer wine and would seek it out again. Well balanced in acidity and sweetness.

The nose showedalmond skins, green apple and young peach, yellow grasses, and minerals. On the palate, it was soft and enveloping, almost oily in texture, with a medium body and a hint of sweetness to its clean peach and pineapple fruits. The finish was fresh, showing green apple and a hint of tart citrus.

Alto Adige is the northern part of the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy that borders the Austrian Tyrol. It was ceded to Italy only after the First World War. This region owes its Italian name of “Alto-Adige” to the river Adige that flows through on its way to the Adriatic. The sleepy village of Termeno/Tramin is thought to be the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewurztraminer. In 2004 Will Stűrz, the winemaker at Tramin, was nominated “Italian winemaker of the Year” by the prestigious Gambero Rosso and makes some of the best white wines in Italy. Tramin proudly holds the “Stella”, the star awarded to a winery for achieving the prestigious “3 Bicchieri” 10 times. Grapes : Pinot Bianco Region : Italy / Alto Adige DOC Maker : Willi Sturz Notes : Dry and crisp with wonderful fruit aromas of white peaches and green apples.

It has a greenish yellow to light yellow color and light scents of green apple. The wine also shows a complex nutty flavor and hints of green leaves. It feels balanced between richness of texture and bright acidity.

"Pale lemon-green in color, this wine offers enticing aromas of green apple, orange zest, tangerine and a touch of tropical fruit. Its zesty acidity makes this wine extremely versatile: pair with grilled chicken and vegetables, crab cakes and shellfish, and sweet and sour Asian food—a perfect by-the-glass selection." -Importer
