More about

Discover the complexity of Roter Traminer. A bold white.

Roter Traminer is the same wine as Savagnin Rose, related to the Gelber Traminer (Savagnin Blanc/Heida) and to Gewürztraminer. In Urban's hands we have, as in his Muskateller, a fabulously aromatic wine that fulfils in the mouth everything it promises in the nose. And that is no mean feat!

Ben says (July 2016): A lovely Gewürtz nose of lychees, rose petals and other aromatic aromas leads to something slightly less Gewürtz in the mouth. It is bold but fruity with strong flavours that persist from the nose.

If you like Gewürtztraminer, you will love Roter Traminer!

Ben says (February 2018): Wonderfully unchanged. Still a few years left in this lovely wine.

Tasting Notes

Vintage 2008

October 2022 - this has no right to still be this good!

The acidity has decreased but it's still very lively. The nose is elegant tertiary (more beeswax nd vanilla than petrol) and Traminer roses. On the palate the fruit has vanished but the feeling of freshness is still there, with a lot of spice (christmas spice, birnbrot spice, pumpkin spice) and balanced moreish bitterness.

Very very drinkable!
