Tramin Terminum Gewurztraminer 37.5cl 2014
The Terminium Gewurztraminer from Tramin is out of the most delightful dessert wines I have ever had the luxury of trying. Tramin have taken grate care with the production of the Terminium wine and it pairs wionderfully with desserts but also with strong cheeses or Foie Gras.
Cantina Tramin, founded in 1898, has 280 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines and covers 230 hectares of vineyards situated on the sunny slopes at an altitude of 250700 metres above sea level. These vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella". This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.
Harvested in December, then macerated for around 12 hours, the grapes were then gently pressed under a pressure of 1.8 bar. The wine was then fermented and aged in French oak barrels.
An elegant dessert wine with golden hues and great intensity. Combining floral and fruit notes with hints of honey and cinnamon, this is a rich and warm wine that's sweet but never cloying
An excellent match for desserts, dried fruit, strong cheese or foie gras
