From the thirteenth century up to the early Modern Era, “Traminer” was the best known wine from what is now South Tyrol. Over the course of centuries, the vines from their village of origin, Tramin, have spread all over the entire world and are now known as Gewürztraminer. On the hills above Kurtatsch with a southern exposure, the highly aromatic Gewürztraminer has found its ideal habitat: chalky and clay soils.
This Gewürztraminer has a superb gold yellow colour. It is a full bodied wine with a vigorous character, powerful backbone and a highly concentrated, weighty aroma. A prominent mineral vein lends a lasting freshness to the almost oily body that is scented with roses, magnolias, and lychees. We suggest you to serve it at 10-11 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
The ideal food matching for Cortaccia's Gewürztraminer? Great as aperitif, perfect in combination with shrimp, lobster, liver, suitable for Asian cuisine (curry) and dessert.
Following a serious crisis in the wine sector, on 1900, May the 13rd, 42 wine makers of Kurtatsch decided to make the first general meeting of the Social winery.
Until that time the grapes were sold wholesale, carrying it with oxcarts to Cornaiano and employing a whole day to convert ten hectoliters of grapes that later, once processed, would reach different markets, including foreign ones.
At that time, there was no retail trade and it was until the end of the First World War to record the sale of the first bottle of wine.
