Tramin Vendemmia Tardiva Gewurztraminer 2009

37.5 cl

Certain weather conditions allow for the development of noble rot. In the Trantino-Alto Adige area, this happened in 2009, creating an elegant dessert wine.These grapes come from a small hamlet of Söll, above the village of Tramin. This vineyard does not enjoy the winds from Lake Garda like other grapes from this producer because it is planted in a small bowl formed by the surrounding hills. In the case of Terminum, this shelter is advantageous in that it allows for the development of noble rot-essential to the production of high quality late harvest wine.

Robert Parker 96 Points 'The 2009 Gewürztraminer Terminum Vendemmia Tardiva is dazzling. Mint, honey, freshly cut flowers and tangerines are some of the nuances that emerge from this insanely beautiful, kaleidoscopic wine. The 2009 impresses for its striking balance and sheer harmony. The Vendemmia Tardiva is often one of Italy's top dessert wines. The 2009 is off the charts. As the name states, the Vendemmia Tardiva is a late-harvest wine. In 2009 the fruit was picked December. The wine was aged in French oak barrelsranging from one to three years old.'
