Traminer Beerenauslese

One of the oldest European varieties, Traminer came to Austria in the Middle Ages from what is now northern Italy. Its skin varies in color from pale yellow to red, and can be found in small, specialized vineyard sites throughout the country. Notoriously demanding in the vineyard, Traminer yields low-acid wines that are intensely aromatic and extract-rich.

Singular weather conditions made 2015 a very special vintage for the Wachau. A hot summer, rainy August, and warm, mild autumn combined to allow late harvesting in all of the Wachau’s vineyards. The overripe, Botrytised fruit has made for a full line of Emmerich’s celebrated dessert wines, and we are thrilled to share the fruits of this historic vintage with you.

Heavily desiccated and Botrytised Traminer fruit from select Wachau vineyards was carefully vinified into this opulent, indulgent dessert wine.
