Straight, sweet fruit with nuances reminiscent of cassis, fine, lively acidity, some persistence, hints of white almonds, salty and chalky notes in the good to very good, quite juicy finish

Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...

The white grape variety is by far the most common variety of Traminer (see detailed information on the Traminer family there), which is referred to in many sources as Savagnin Blanc (or Savagnin for short). The numerous synonyms are partly also used for other varieties such as Savagnin Rose and for Traminer in general. Therefore, one cannot infer the "correct" variety without any doubt from the name/synonym. The most important ones grouped alphabetically by country are Savagnin Rose Aromatique (Australia); Mala Dinka (Bulgaria); Clevner, Klevner, Rother Muskattraminer, Roter Traminer, Traminer Rot...
