undefined, null

An expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, Gewürztraminer is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces beautiful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. With the notable exception of the Anderson Valley, most regions of California are too warm for Gewürztraminer. It has done particularly well in northerly, cooler regions of North America such as British Columbia, Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula, and New York's Finger Lakes.

Tasting Notes for Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer can be a dry or sweet white wine. It is highly aromatic, with intense flavors of lychee, rose petal, ginger, exotic spice, smoke, pineapple, apricot or peach. A naturally low acidity is offset by high levels of skin-derived phenolics, which in addition to aromatics, provide weight and a good structural grip.

Perfect Food Pairings for Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer’s natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. It is also excellent with dense, oily fish like salmon, swordfish and mahi-mahi. Gewürztraminer truly shines with classic Alsatian dishes like choucroute, Quiche Lorraine and anything egg-based.

Sommelier Secrets for Gewürztraminer

Because of its floral perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine. For those who have been introduced to wine through Moscato or other sweet wines, Gewürztraminer can serve as the perfect bridge towards an appreciation for dry whites.
