Winemaker's Notes:

Bright yellow in color with coppery reflections and clear fruit aromas of pear, citrus, honeysuckle, tropical fruits and light spices. Firm, velvety and rich on the palate, with well-integrated acidity. A very round and satisfying wine. Recommended with fish antipasti, risotto with asparagus, omelets and pasta

About Tramin:

Frequently called "Europe's most beautiful wine growing region," Alto Adige is home to traditions that extend back to the days of the Roman Empire. Tramin is one of the oldest wineries in Alto Adige, and among the richest in tradition. In 1898, Pastor Christian Schrott founded the winery in the heart of the Termeno region on the south side of the Alps. Today, the Tramin numbers 290 members who raise grapes on a total of approximately 575 acres in the communities of Tramin, Neumarkt, Montan, and Auer. Tramin’s winemaker, Willi Stürz, was named "winemaker of the Year" in 2004 by Italy's most important wine publication, Gambero Rosso.

Wine Enthusiast rating: 91 points
PRICE ON 10/22/2014: $16.99

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is a pale straw green in color and it has a very fine, yet persistent bead. On the nose there are lifted strawberry, citrus and nutty aromas with just a hint of sherbet character. On the palate it is a medium to full bodied style with generous stonefruit and citrus flavors and a very smooth, yet generous finish.

Viticulture: This wine is a combination of chardonnay (57%) and pinot noir (43%) sourced from premium vineyards within the premier grape growing regions of Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale. The fruit was hand picked to ensure maximum control of natural freshness and retention of primary flavors.

Winemaker's Notes:

With a fine ruby color, Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosé has exotic aromas of raspberries, strawberries and cream with notes of lilac and violets, all with a minerally edge. A succulent mouth feel is enhanced by flavors of strawberry, rhubarb and cinnamon. It opens to a fine dense body of wine with a soft texture that is long and beautifully balanced.
