Our Gewürztraminer AURATUS grows in its place of origin, Tramin, on the South Tyrolean Wine Route. On an exposed sunny vineyard in the Rungg area of Tramin, we take advantage of the ideal conditions for the production of physiologically ripe Gewürztraminer grapes. The vines grow at an altitude between 320 – 400 metres in clay-loam soil.
When the grapes have reached their ideal, physiological maturity, they are selected and sorted by hand from late September to mid October to ensure only the best grapes are used in the further processing of this Gewürztraminer. From a plant density of 7,000 vines, a yield of 45 hectolitres per hectare of wine is produced.
The fully ripe and selected grapes undergo an approximately seven-hour process of cold maceration before pressing. Temperature-controlled fermentation at 20°C and ageing on the lees give this Gewürztraminer its
Gewürztraminer AURATUS is ideal as an aperitif and goes exceptionally well with spicy foods, liver pate, Asian cuisine, sophisticated fish dishes, crab and lobster.
