Literally translated as spicy Traminer, “Gewurz” is an aromatic variety with an intense and complex nose of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, peppermint, cloves and pepper). Layers of honey and ripe fruit also give these wines an incomparably rich and expressive nose.
Full-bodied and well-structured, Gewurztraminer has a subtle freshness that makes it an ideal partner with many aromatic and intense cuisines, standing up to powerful spices such as those found in Indian cuisine. Gewurz pairs well with strong cheeses and sweet savories such as dates and figs.
