Tramin Gewurztraminer Late Harvest Terminum 2009 375ml

Rated 96 - The 2009 Gewurztraminer Terminum Vendemmia Tardiva is dazzling. Mint, honey, freshly cut flowers and tangerines are some of the nuances...


This wine is not grown in enough areas in this country, especially considering the spectacular results of the efforts of a handful of vintners in California's Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley and Santa Barbara County. Its roots can be traced to Northern Italy's Traminer, although is grown successfully as Gewurtztraminer (Gewurz means spicy) in Austria, Germany, Alsace and elsewhere. It is rich, full-bodied and powerful, with ripe pears, tropical fruits and reminiscent of lychee nuts. At its best it is perfumed with floral qualities, like roses, and potently spicy, especially in the aroma.
