2020 Laimburg Elyònd Alto Adige Gewurztraminer Riserva
ELYÒND - The name comes from the legends of the Dolomites and means: mountain princess with golden hair. The label was designed by the artist Robert Bosisio. The Laimburg Elyònd Alto Adige Gewurztraminer Riserva comes from Sella, the sun terrace of Alto Adige. After manual picking and fermentation, this wine remains on lees (sur lie) for between 8-10 months and after bottling also receives a few months of bottle aging before being released. This great wine is rich, golden yellow and aromas of roses, lavender and dried figs define the aroma spectrum. The very pleasant persistent acidity coming from the altitude (Alto Adige) provides elegance and finesse. The Elyònd is lush but very well balanced and nice and dry and it is precisely the latter that makes this gewurztraminer so beautiful.

The grapes come from the agribusiness vineyards in Laimburg; of about 20 hectares of vineyards in different wine-growing areas of Alto Adige. The vineyards are on the plain or are distributed on hilly and steep slopes with very different soils: moraine and alluvial soils alternate with primary rock and loamy limestone gravel. The grapes grow at altitudes between 200 and 750 meters above sea level in different training systems such as pergola or trellis, depending on the needs of the respective grape variety. In its role as a model winery, the Laimburg winery produces about 90,000 bottles of wine annually, with the main aim of bringing into the glass the varietal character of the approximately 15 typical varieties of the province.
The diversity of grape varieties in Alto Adige is also reflected in the range of wines produced at Laimburg Winery; in addition, a wide variety of grape varieties are tested at different altitudes to determine the ideal vineyard locations. In addition to the classic South Tyrolean grape varieties, Laimburg Winery is also increasingly testing new or interesting grape varieties from around the world (e.g. Tannat, Petit Verdot, Incrocio Manzoni and new varieties such as Solaris and Cabernet Cortis) for cultivation and vinification in South Tyrol. The top line wines of Laimburg are of a very high quality and are among the finest available in Alto Adige. Beautiful wines with good acidity that makes the typical beautiful aging possible.
