This offer is your opportunity to embrace gewürztraminer at its exotic, exuberant best!

At just £16.95 per bottle, this is a cracking white for the summer.

Fragrant, spicy and smoky with notes of roses and tropical fruit, the palate is generous and rich with great texture and a touch of sweetness. A delicious, balancing acidity helps to keep the wine fresh and long-lived on the palate.

Gewürztraminer is one of the wine trade's great secrets.

These beautifully aromatic wines are a perfect match to spicy food - above all Thai cuisine - and their under the radar profile means the wines sell for very little money, despite the incredible quality.

If you've never tried gewürztraminer, now's the chance!

And if you have, you really don't want to miss this beautiful example...

About the wine

Straw yellow in colour, with an intensely fruity gewürztraminer scent that is exotic, spicy, floral and smoky with notes of ginger and lychee. The wine has a powerful, rich bouquet of roses and tropical fruit and the follow through on the palate is equally expressive at the same time as being harmonious and refreshing. With a long, spicy finish, this is a wine that is ideally suited to drinking as an aperitif or with spicy foods.

The grapes were handpicked and once in the winery they were macerated for 12 hours before being gently pressed and then fermented in stainless steel, on their lees, for six months.

About the winery

The Castelfeder winery was founded by Alfons Giovanett in 1969.

In the beginning the focus was primarily on red varieties and it was only when Alfons’ son, Günther came on board and the business expanded that white wines became a greater focus.

Very much a family business, the third generation are actively involved. Ines Giovanett works in sales and marketing and brother Ivan is the winemaker. 

About the vineyard

The sixty hectares of vineyards that are owned by Castelfeder, spread from Salorno to Bolzano in the South Tyrol.

The name “Vom Lehm” refers to the loamy soil on which gewürztraminer produces the best wine.

Pergola trellises used to dominate the vineyard landscape in the Alto Adige but distance between the vines today to allow for optimal exposure to the sun and ventilation has seen an increase through the use of wire frame (guyot) trellises.

"
The 2015 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Vom Lehm is true to the grape with fragrant layers of white flower, musky honeysuckle, preserved lemon and dried mountain herb. This white wine flaunts its big intensity and its opulent bouquet with charming confidence."

"Perfect example of Gewurztraminer. Intense at nose, white fruit, minerality, tropical notes. In mouth it is soft, well structured, good intensity and medium high persistency." 4/5 Stars

"Lush in sense and taste. Roses, orange blossom, banana peel and peach shine in bright acidity. The rich juice is flowing down to Earth, gone to Earth in a mint state. Loam is the soil, a mineral spine of cloaked warming bitterness."  4/5 Stars

"A finely balanced wine, very aromatic note of lychee but kept in check with a refreshing dryness. Dreamy with a Thai curry"  4/5 Stars

"A good Gewürztraminer is a thing of beauty...a dry Gewürz paired with spicy Thai food, sweet-and-savoury Middle-Eastern tagines or pungent cheeses: yes, please!...evocatively aromatic, bursting with tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), apricots, cinnamon, honey and rosewater. Generous and mouth filling, it balances rich exotic fruit, spices and just enough acidity into a long finish. 4/5 Stars

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
