From the thirteenth century up to the early Modern Era, “Traminer” was the best known wine from what is now South Tyrol. Over the course of centuries, the vines from their village of origin, Tramin, have spread all over the entire world and are now known as Gewürztraminer. On the hills above Kurtatsch with a southern exposure, the highly aromatic Gewürztraminer has found its ideal habitat: chalky and clay soils! This is where a full-bodied wine is born with a powerful backbone and a highly concentrated, weighty aroma. A prominent mineral vein lends a lasting freshness to the almost oily body that is scented with roses, magnolias, and lychees.
