Elena Walch Gewurztraminer Kastelaz
Elena Walch, a former architect, became a wine producer in 1985 after marrying into one of the oldest established wine families in Tramin. She took over two magnificent estates: Castel Ringberg, and Kastelaz, a steep, south-facing hillside which towers above the village centre of Tramin. Not surprisingly, the latter is highly regarded for its white wine made from the Gewürztraminer grape which took its name from the village Tramin. Star Winery - Gambero Rosso (Indicates that the winery has won ten 3 Glass Awards by Gambero Rosso. They are the elite, the aristocracy, in short the very top flight of Italian wine.)
Our Gewürztraminer Vigna “Kastelaz” is a ripe, lush golden yellow color. Its bouquet is intensive, captivating and very complex with aromas of roses and litchis as well as dried fruits, with spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves and a touch of honey in the background. The wine is just as convincing and complex in the mouth: round and full, compact and creamy with harmonious freshness and structure as well as an aromatic finish. A wine with finesse and character.
