tramin stoan 2020 750ml
$39.99 SPECIAL $39.95
Stoan is a unique wine of its kind reflecting the complexity and potential of our region. It is a lively blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Gewürztraminer, born from the creativity of our winemaker.
The wine shows a straw color with light lemon hue. The aromas are intense yet clean and suggest hints of peaches, ripe pears and elderflowers as well as tropical aromas of pineapples and mangos. The wine is fresh and gentle on the palate, with great balance and lasting intensity.
Stoan seems almost intentionally crafted to match the exotic flavors of Asian fusion cuisine and is wonderful with dishes like braised halibut in a coconut and lemongrass sauce or caramelized ginger chicken with jasmine rice.
Blend: 65% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Pinot Bianco, 5% Gewürztraminer
RP94, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"A carefully measured blend of 65% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Pinot Bianco and 5% Gewürztraminer, the Cantina Tramin 2020 Alto Adige Stoan hits the mark. This 60,000-bottle release is beautifully balanced. In addition to the creaminess of the Chardonnay and the slightly more lifted bouquet shaped by the two aromatic grapes (the Sauvignon Blanc and the Gewürztraminer), the wine feels dry, elegant and mineral driven. Underripe pear and white fruit add pretty tartness and considerable tension to this medium-bodied white. Salty notes last long on the finish. It ages in botte grande for 11 months."
JS93, James Suckling
"The upfront aromas of yellow grapefruit and ripe gooseberry are classic sauvignon blanc, but as it aerates, pear and ripe apple notes emerge. On the palate, there’s a parallel, nicely intertwined combination of brightness and creaminess, until you splash land in the juicy, exotic finish. Just reaching it’s best drinking form, but still fresh. A cuvee based on chardonnay with sauvignon blanc, gewurztraminer and pinot blanc. Drink or hold."
WS91, Wine Spectator
"A fresh and fragrant white, with delicate tarragon and white pepper aromatics accenting the crunchy pear, tangerine and stony mineral character. Medium-bodied, with sleek acidity creating a lightly mouthwatering impression on the spiced finish. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Bianco and Gewürztraminer."
