Gewürztraminer

Floral wines for exotic cuisine

SeThe aroma is unmistakable: if it smells of exuberant rose, lychee and fresh grape, it is guaranteed to be Gewürztraminer. Its berries shine almost pink at harvest, but the wine is golden yellow. It has low acidity, but often reaches 14 percent alcohol and more. It is characterized by a slight bitter note at the end. These flavours stem from the family of the Traminers. It is cultivated on a large scale in Alsace, where the “gewurz” (spice) brings out an exotic side. In South Tyrol it is known as Traminer aromatic, and in Germany simply – and wrongly – as Traminer. In the Palatinate, there is a Gewurztraminer vineyard whose stocks are likely up to 400 years old. Wines of this variety harmonize fantastically with Asian cuisine, especially with Thai dishes and their lemongrass aromas.
