Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.
The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.
This variety is one of the most popular white wines in Alto Adige. Alois Lageder's Gewürztraminer owes its character to a combination of grapes from two wine-growing areas: The warm sites around Termeno give the wine substance, body and sweetness, while the higher and cooler sites in Valle Isarco confer freshness, finesse and a fine aromatic structure.
Gently aromatic with floral rose petal and geranium notes; the palate is racy, dry and light without any heavy Gewurz oiliness and the fruit clean, citrussy and perfumed.
This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.
This wine is a delicate yellow colour with hints of golden straw. The aromas are floral with the predominant notes being jasmine and honeysuckle. There is also some stonefruit influence including ripe peaches and a little spice. It is dry and crisp with citrus flavours and a pleasant mineralit with a good but noticeable level of acidity. Its finish is very elegant and crisp. This wine works tremendously well with spicy dishes such as Thai food - alternatively why not try it with a spicy paella?!
A beautiful and bright yellow with deep gold tint. The nose has complex flavours of fresh almond and rose, opening up to a nice touch of crystallized fruits and fresh grape. A deep and generous palate, with the elegant aromas of the nose. The balance is well set by the freshness and the sweetness is not dominant. A nice, delicate medium dry wine with a long and spicy aftertaste dominated by hints of pepper and rose.
Beautifully concentrated aromatic flavours of lychee, rose petals and violets on the nose. The palate is full bodied with a lovely glycerine texture and some hints of apricot. Deliciously long.
This is a magnificent Gewurtztraminer from the hill at Bergheim which faces South. This Grand Cru's nose is both floral and spicy with notes of rosewater papaya and kumquat. It exhibits both great power and finesse with ripe tropical flavours including mango, lychee and passion fruit. It is full bodied and dense in flavour.
An exuberant wine with a spicy character, this Gewurztraminer reveals the typical aromas and flavours of the grape variety as well as notes of fresh lychee, mango and passion fruit. Its mouth-feel is fresh yet full and almost silky, whilst it displays exotic and spicy aromas such as mixed white pepper.
With lifted notes of Turkish delight and crystallized ginger, the palate has weight and texture without sweetness, giving it persistence and elegance.
