Region: Trentino-Alto Adige
Type: White Wine
Elena Walch has turned her Alto Adige wine estate into one of Italy's best names for Gewürztraminer. This wine comes entirely from from estate-grown fruit. The grapes undergo six-hour maceration on the skins, then are gently pressed and fermented in steel tanks at controlled temperatures before aging on the lees for several months in stainless steel containers.
Crisp, racy and aromatic, with an intense straw-yellow color and aromas of cinnamon and other spices, with floral overtones. Energetic and crisp, with balanced acidity and texture. Fruity notes of ripe apple, dried apricot and lychee nuts are accompanied by some spiciess on the finish.
