Gewürztraminer

The country of origin of this aromatic white wine is not definitely settled. However, the derivation of its name can certainly be found in South Tyrol: in the small wine village Tramin.

Along the wine route in southern South Tyrol the Gewürztraminer with its special reddish grapes was widely spread already in the 11th century. Meantime it fell into oblivion, but today it amounts to about 8% of the regional viniculture. In South Tyrol and in Italy it ranks among the most popular white wines and time and again it reaps national and international awards.

Gewürztraminer cultivation

By now this kind of white wine is grown in many countries from Australia to the USA – and in this way also the eponymous village became world-famous. Indeed, the cultivation of the Gewürztraminer grapes is deemed to be quite difficult, because the vines are fairly demanding and they prefer warm, loamy but not too dry earth, a kindly hillside situation and mild climate.

In South Tyrol the Gewürztraminer covers a cultivated area of circa 574 hectares, so it doesn’t play such a decisive part. Its vines can be found not only in Tramin, but also in other zones of Southern South Tyrol, in Eisacktal, Vinschgau and all around Meran.

Golden & aromatic

Connoisseurs appreciate the Gewürztraminer as rather dry, but very aromatic and intensive white wine with low acid content. Its flavour sometimes reminds of rose petals, cloves, marzipan, oranges, cinnamon or litchis and the colour palette ranges from light yellow to golden.

Some people suggest that the nippy white wine goes best with dishes of the Asian cuisine. In fact, it is suited as well as fresh aperitif or dessert wine, together with spicy starters, fish, shellfish and crustaceans. With an ideal temperature of 10° C to 12° C it is easily drinkable; therefore you should consider that it has a relatively high alcohol level up to 14 %.

By the way: Every two years in summer in Tramin there are organized festivals and events dedicated to the local white wine!
