The Wilhelm Walch winery lies in the traditional wine village of Tramin in Alto Adige, the northernmost Italian wine-producing region. Since its founding in 1869, it has remained in the hands of the founders, the Walchs, who have decisively influenced the development of Alto Adige wine culture.
The wine estate puts emphasis on the typicity of Alto Adige and its local wine varieties – classic wines in a modern and straightforward style – while rounding out the broad palette of wines with international varieties. The quality of the wines are a testament to professional expertise in the cellar and meticulous work in the steep vineyards at the feet of the Dolomites. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated according to the guidelines for environmentally friendly viticulture. Uncompromising work in the vineyards along with manual cultivation and gentle harvesting by hand produces clean wines of fine varietal style.
This 100% Gewurtztraminer has great acidity and is made with an emphasis on the fresh, slightly floral fruit that is supported by the typical 'spiciness' of the grape.
Full bodied and dry, there is nonetheless a touch of residual sugar that lends a richness well suited to food such as shellfish and patès.
