Gewürztraminer

Alto Adige - Südtirol Doc

‘King’ of the South Tyrol white wines, Gewürztraminer is highly appreciated for its rich aromaticity. This grape variety is cultivated in the best exposed vineyards on Salorno hill, on deep, silty, and densely clay soils. Of a deep straw-yellow colour, Dürer-weg Gewürztraminer wine has an aroma which evokes rose petals, cinnamon, tropical fruits and cloves. Dense and well-structured on the palate, well-bodied, notably fresh and lively.
