Tramin Pinot Grigio 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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 Strz, 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. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio Harvest: By hand Yield: 80HL per hectare Soil: Clay and calcareous Height: 200m-400M above sea level Winemaking: The grapes were softly pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tank at 19C . No malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was left to rest in stainless steel vats until bottled. Serve: Chilled as an aperitif with fish, shellfish and mushroom dishes Taste: Rich, full, dry and long with a good mineral character and a hint of honey and nuts in the background.

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
