Descrizione vino

A sensational and unusual blend composed by 95% Gewürztraminer and 5% Sauvignon. The grapes of this refined article produced by Elena Walch are harvested at the end of September. The bunches are placed on trellis in a room with a good ventilation where the fruits dry out for 4 months. This process causes a weight loss of 2/3, that means that sugar, aromas, sourness and tannins become more concentrated. After a slow fermentation of 6 weeks, the wine making process considers a year aging on lees, in steel and a further period of maturation in the bottle. The quantity of sugar is so high, that the yeasts aren’t able to complete the fermentation and the wine remains naturally sweet.
