Gewürztraminer "Praesulis", Markus Prackwieser Gump - 2021

Item # 39237 750mL

Gewürztraminer is one of the most polarizing grapes around as it's a love or hate relationship with this aromatic wine. This bottle is certainly a most elegant and well-made version so we're convinced many of you who like strong aromas will appreciate this bottle. After fermentation the wine rests in bottle for 8 months before releasing. Luscious, aromatic, dry and unoaked. This comes from the Prackwieser family which has owned Gump Hof for more than 200 years. Markus discovered his passion for wine in the mid-90s and took over the family heirloom from his father in the year 2000.

Staff Pick Notes

Gewurztraminer is the red-headed step-child of wine varietals. It gets no love from the Sommeliers and wine geeks who act as arbiters of taste. However, in the hands a supremely talented winemaker like Markus Prackwieser it can express terroir and its varietal characteristics as well as any other international varietal, perhaps even better. Honey, flowers and spice waltz on the palate and nose. Typically, lower acid, it is a decadent treat. You'll never confuse this wine for anything else.

Trentino-Alto Adige

Crossing the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, Trentino-Alto-Adige is in fact comprised of two autonomous regions (Trentino and Alto-Adige). The swath of land was returned to Italy after World War I, and the two regions have been lumped together in the winemaking world ever since. Alto-Adige, the northernmost half of the region, retains great pride in its Germanic heritage, evidenced by the dual language bottle labels appearing in the region. The region is most famous for its...

Alto Adige

Comprising the northern half of the oft-conjoined Trentino/Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy, Alto-Adige is in fact its own entity with its own distinct style of winemaking. Situated on the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, the two autonomous regions were returned to Italy after World War I (hence why they are often lumped together). Alto-Adige retains great pride in its Germanic heritage, evidenced by the dual language bottle labels appearing in the region. Alto-Adige is most...

Gewürztraminer

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates, which allow the grapes to develop good balancing acidity. This is a necessary attribute of any...
