SELIDA Gewürztraminer

Appellation

Südtirol - Alto Adige DOC

Grapes

Gewürztraminer

Vineyards

A selection of vineyards with southwest exposure on some of the steepest terraces in the region at altitudes from 300-500 meters. The soil is calciferous loam with gravel. Extreme interplay of sunny days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and cool nights marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains. The name "Selida" comes from Old High German and means "small farmstead", a tribute to the longstanding culture of smallholdings that still constitute the strength of Cantina Tramin.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand in small bins and gently pressed after a short period of maceration. Fermentation at controlled temperature (18° C) in small steel tanks, where maturation takes place without malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

This wine has an intensively shining golden yellow colour. It demonstrates a wealth of aromas including roses, lilies, spicy flowers, dried herbs and ripe exotic fruits such as mangos and passion fruit. In the mouth, it is rich in body and extract with finely spiced juiciness.

Food Pairing

Pairs wonderfully with food, especially antipastos with fish and ripe smoked cheese, white meat dishes and swordfish or seafood. Exciting as an accompaniment to spicy dishes, Oriental cuisine and spicy, aromatic creations.
