Flora Gewürztraminer

Vintage

2015

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

One third of the grapes chosen for this extraordinary wine come from the hillside vineyards of Cornaiano at an altitude from 450 to 500 m above sea level. They grow in different vineyards with an age between 10 and 15 years. The other two thirds come from the Bassa Atesina - Cortaccia. The combination of mineral-rich gravel and clay soils gives this wine its unique character.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Aging on the lees for 8 months in stainless steel tanks without malolatic fermentation.

Tasting notes & food matching

The intense, aromatic bouquet, together with soft, full character needs flavoursome dishes. We recommend serving this wine with shellfish, flavoured cheeses and desserts, such as strudel. Also a good match with spicy dishes and sweet and sour creations with an Asian touch.
