Tramin Terminum Alto Adige Late Harvest Gewurztraminer 2017

Elegant and opulent this award-winning sweet wine is
golden in colour and combines intense flavours of
toffee, mango, lychee and mandarins. Complex, long
and beautifully balanced.


Producer Note
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.


Vintage
Mild temperatures in spring led to early bud break. Favourable conditions in May
further accelerated the development of the vegetation. Warm and humid weather
during July and August resulted in good physiological development of the vines.
Autumn brought about considerable fluctuations in temperature, encouraging a
long phase of maturation, helping to concentrate the flavours in the berries. The
2017 white wines are very well balanced, with beautiful fruit, fine acidity and juicy
freshness.


Vineyard
The Gewürztraminer vines are planted between 400 and 500 metres above sea level
in the small hamlet of Söll, above the village of Tramin. The vines are between15 to 25
years old and yield 19 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is made up of clay and gravel,
with a limestone layer from 20 to 100cm and porphyry bedrock. The vineyard site
does not endure the winds from Lake Garda because it is planted in a small bowl
formed by the surrounding hills – this shelter helps with the development of Botrytis
Cinerea, which is essential to the production of high quality late-harvest wine.


Winemaking
The grapes were late harvested during the month of December. The hand-picked
berries were delivered in small containers. The grapes were macerated for
approximately 12 hours and then gently pressed under a pressure of 1.8 bar. The
wine was fermented with wild yeasts at 19°C in barriques followed by six to nine
months' ageing in the same barriques.


Tasting Note
Elegant and opulent, this sweet wine combines intense aromas of peach, apricot,
lychee, mango and orange zest, with lifted floral notes and honey. Refreshing acidity
harmoniously balances the rich, sweet and intensely aromatic palate. Refined and
elegant mineral notes add complexity on the long lasting finish.
