Viticulture

The plants are of French and Italian origin. The forming is single vertical shoot positioning (VSP or single guyot), the density is 5000 plants per hectare. The yield is controlled at 9-10 ton/ha. Regulation of production, e.g., green pruning is made when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Also, important viticultural practice is de-leafing the vines on the non-sun exposed side in the afternoons and stimulate formation of leaf mass on the sun-exposed side.

Tasting notes

Bright medium intense yellow color with greenish hues. An elegant nose of fine geranium notes, acacia, and elderflower, enhanced by hints of ripe lemon and fresh herbs. Midalidare Traminer has good structure and freshness, good balance between body and acidity. The palate is dominated by geranium and juicy grapefruit, with a Mild oily feeling due to the wine aging on lees. The finish is herbal and spicy, with a very long aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest takes place in the early mornings, in mid-September. Hand-picked grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The finest selection of Traminer grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
