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.
Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards planted between 250 and 550 metres above sea level, in the calcareous clay and gravel soils common to the area of Sella near Tramin. The name of this wine comes from the patron of Sella, Saint Mauritius.
The grapes for this wine were harvested in small bins and then gently pressed off to steel tanks where the must was allowed to ferment at a controlled temperature of 19°C, without malolactic fermentation. 80% of the wine was aged in stainless steel and 20% in large oak casks of 30 to 40 hectolitres, imparting subtle oak complexity.
