This extraordinary late harvest wine is one of the various expressions of Gewürztraminer: a dessert wine that packs an aromatic explosion into every sip.

MONTHS OF MATURATION
YEARS OF AGING POTENTIAL
Alto Adige DOC
A long winter left the vines dormant until early April. Bud break was followed by a drop in temperatures, which delayed flowering. The weather remained changeable throughout the summer, with a very hot June and wet July, providing the ideal groundwork for the imminent maturation period. August presented itself from its best side, with sunny and dry weeks and extraordinarily low temperatures at night. Apart from few showers in late September/early October, the weather during the harvest, which started 10 days later than last year and with lower volumes than usual, was characterised by many warm days with increasingly cooler nights. The white wines of the 2021 vintage showcase great depth and reveal pronounced freshness and delicate fruity notes on the palate, whereas the fuller bodied red wines boast mature tannins and fresh aromas of fruit.
- grapes: Gewürztraminer
- yield: 25 hl/hectare
- altitude: 300 – 500 m
- harvest: end of November
- soil: The vines grow in the gravely clay and limestone soils found above Tramin. The production area is situated on the eastern and south-eastern slopes of Mount Roen.

The grapes for this extraordinary wine dry on the vine until end of November and beginning of December. After maceration, they are pressed very gently at 1.2 bar. Fermentation and aging take place in small French oak barrels for around 12 months. After bottling, the wine matures in the bottle for another couple of months.
beautiful golden-yellow color
A substantial texture forms the background to scents of honey, exotic notes of tropical fruit, as well as dried apricot, candied citrus peel, rose, ginger and vanilla.
Sweet and velvety in the mouth, it explodes with vitality, maintaining perfect elegance. The finish feels like it lasts for several minutes.
