"The 2019 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Tradition offers a pretty, off-gold color with fragrant tones of honeysuckle, star jasmine and tropical fruit. There are heavier, glossy aromas as well that remind me of new rubber boots, saffron and even a touch of cumin. This is a beautifully rich, mid-weight expression of the fragrant Gewürztraminer grape, with some distant stickiness and sweetness. Production is 100,000 bottles strong. Drink: 2020-2024. 92 points

There are no major changes to report from Cantina Terlano this year. However, I was very pleased to receive a harvest press release—no, not for grapes, but for asparagus. I did not know this, but the Cantina Terlano cooperative members also farm the pointy spring vegetable, and the 2020 harvest brought in 45,000 kilograms of asparagus in April and May. Specifically, these are Margarete asparagus, which are light gold or white in color with delicate flavors. They make a perfect pairing to one of the local Sauvignon Blanc-based wines, served with cold ham and shaved eggs. I am delighted to learn that the South Tyrol asparagus harvest is accompanied by a Terlano asparagus festival, in which an asparagus queen is crowned and paraded in costume to mark the opening of asparagus season."
