Grape Variety: Gewürztraminer
Vineyards: The Nussbaumer estate is located in Sella, a small village above Tramin. Vineyards here are planted between 350 - 550 meters on the slopes below the Roen mountains, an ideal position to benefit from fresh, drying wind that blows from Lake Garda during the entire growing season. The soil is made up of clay and gravel, with a limestone layer from 20 - 100 cm and porphyry subsoil.
Yield: 45 hl/hectare
Winemaking: The grapes were harvested in small bins, then gently crushed and left to macerate with their juice for a brief period to capture the characteristic aromatics of Gewürztraminer. After pressing, the must is left to ferment at a controlled temperature (18-20°C) in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Nussbaumer has a long history of over 700 years of winegrowing, and it is one of the oldest estates in Tramin. The selection of Gewürztraminer from this estate embodies all the characteristics of this variety: an intense, bright straw-yellow color, and notes of fragrant rose petals, cinnamon, ripe tropical fruits and carnations. The engaging aromas offer hints of spice that lift the lush palate.
Food Pairing: Ideal as an aperitif, the wine is perfect with seafood, particularly Asian cuisine. On its own, Nussbaumer is a wine of meditation, to accompany and unforgettable moment with good company.
