St. Michael Eppan Gewürztraminer Classico 2022

Gewürztraminer has experienced a true renaissance in recent years. This reddish berry grape variety originated in our neighboring wine village of Tramin and today grows in almost every production zone around the world. Unlike many of the world's Gewürztraminers, this one is vinified dry. The result is a fruity yet spicy character you won't soon forget. Its aromatic richness, characterized by delicate spicy notes of clove and delicate roses, makes it absolutely captivating. The wine is straw yellow in color. In the nose, it has a spicy aroma of clove, cinnamon, roses and lychee. Fruity and spicy, aromatic with a long finish.
