Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.
Bud-break took place slightly later than usual, but high temperatures and humidity precipitated flowering. From mid-June the weather was hot and dry; and the vines benefitted from slight water stress. Intense rainfall shortly before harvest was beneficial for the vines, enabling the grapes to reach the final stages of maturity without reaching drought stress. Harvest took place under ideal conditions; the whites are elegant with delicate acidity and the reds are full-bodied with powerful tannins.
The vineyards are located in the Südtirol, in the Alto Adige DOC. Alto Adige is a dynamic wine growing region in Northern Italy that combines a brisk Alpine climate, mountain viticulture and complex geology, with the brilliance of Mediterranean sunshine. The grapes come from vineyards planted in calcareous clay and gravel soils at an altitude of between 250 and 550 metres above sea level. The yield is 75 hectolitres per hectare. Winemaking Made by winemaker Will Stűrz, who has been previously nominated "Italian winemaker of the Year" by the prestigious Gambero Rosso and who makes some of the best white wines in Italy. The grapes for this wine were harvested in small bins and were gently pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 19°C. No malolactic fermentation took place, resulting in a fresh, crisp style of wine. The wine spent a brief time in stainless steel vats retaining the freshness and purity of fruit until bottled.
Dry, crisp and refreshing with delicate fruit aromas of green apples, with a nutty complexity and hints of green leaves. The wine shows a beautiful balance between a bright acidity and a richness of texture.
Pair with grilled chicken and vegetables, crab cakes and shellfish, and sweet & sour Asian food.
