This Alto Adige classic is made from 100% single-vineyard Gewürztraminer, grown in the highly esteemed Nussbaumer plot. This privileged vineyard site is bathed in maritime breezes from Lago di Garda and sits at a higher elevation which results in a longer growing season. After harvesting in multiple passes to capture the optimal ripeness of each bunch, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve their freshness and purity.
This Gewürztraminer embodies all the characteristics of the varietal: an intense, bright lemon-yellow color, aromas of stone fruits, fragrant rose petals, exotic spices, ripe tropical fruits, and lychee, as well as flavors of stone and tropical fruits with honeyed, floral, and spicy notes. Above all, the wine's layers are particularly evident on the rich, long finish.
Ideal as an aperitif, the wine is perfect with seafood, particularly Asian-influenced fish dishes. On its own, Nussbaumer is a wine of meditation, to accompany an unforgettable moment with good friends.
