Gewurztraminer "Kolbenhof" DOC Hofstatter
The Gewürztraminer Kolbenhof from Termeno is the only aromatic grape variety of Italy. This Gewürztraminer is a selection of a vineyard of our estate Kolbenhof in Tramin - Tramin, one of the great crus of the South Tyrolean Gewürztraminer, thanks to the particular microclimate, the ideal location and the age of the vineyards. The vine bears the name of its country of origin, and right here at the Kolbenhof, it finds the ideal growing conditions to develop the best sides of its character. Only the denomination "Vigna", for this wine guarantees in South Tyrol the origin of a wine from a specific vineyard that rises on soils with mainly clay and calcareous gravel. The vinification requires the bunches to be lightly pressed and the must left a few hours in contact with the skin to enhance its varietal characteristics. After a gentle pressing and sedimentation of the must ferments at a controlled temperature. The Kolbenhof Gewürztraminer ripens for a further 8 months on the fine lees after fermentation. The fine yeasts are gently moved weekly following the Bâtonnage technique.
