Troy, our idea of ​​Chardonnay

In the language of our ancestors, “Troy” means “path”. This name epitomizes the journey that Cantina Tramin has taken through many years of research and experimentation.

A journey that has led us to study carefully every minute detail of Chardonnay, a noble grape variety from which some of the best white wines in the world are made.

We have slowly accustomed this variety, whose cultivation is not as simple as generally assumed, to the special conditions of our mountain slopes.


Alto Adige DOC



vintage description

A dry winter and an initially cold month of March were followed by above-average temperatures in spring, favouring early bud break and premature flowering. From mid-May to early June the weather was mostly rainy and wet. During the following ripening stage rainfall was evenly distributed and only a few hot days made for short periods of drought. Throughout the summer the nights were refreshingly cool. Harvest began in early September and until mid-October it was repeatedly interrupted by single days of rain, luckily followed by longer periods of sun. The white wines are crispy and fresh and have an intense olfactory appeal. Finesse and elegance characterise the red wines, which already hint at a great aging potential.

winemaking and maturation

During the manual harvest each single grape is checked for quality. The grapes are delivered in small bins and pressed without being destemmed first. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occurs in Bordeaux barrels. After 11 months on the fine lees the wine is transferred to stainless steel tanks for an additional 22 months of sur lie aging.
Finally, the must clarifies naturally by sedimentation of the suspended particles.

Tasting notes

intense golden yellow

delicate floral and citrusy nuances, tropical fruit, chamomile and peppermint with a fine
touch of roasted almonds and hazelnuts

Very elegantly Troy shows off his Alpine character: ripe exotic notes of mango, banana and Galia melon are tinged with subtle tones of hazelnuts against a backdrop of incredible freshness and salty minerality. The finish is long and juicy with a lively mineral backbone.
