Buy Gewürztraminer Online

Gewürztraminer is like the grown-up version of Moscato. It's lower in acidity, has more punchy aromatics, and higher alcohol content. It's tell-tale sign is the lychee or sweet rose aroma that makes it identifiable in a blind tasting.

On the palate, quality wines will have notes of grapefruit, rose, ginger. Such aromatics will give it an inherently sweet flavor, even though it can be made in a dry style, similar to Muscat, Riesling, or Torrontes.

Origins lie in the German foothills of the Alps, but has since become a popular grape amongst the countries surrounding the Alps- Italy, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, France and Slovenia, as well as other cool climate regions like those in US & New Zealand. In France, it's one of the four Grand Cru grapes in Alsace.

With only about 20,000 acres planted worldwide, it's not as commonly found as Moscato or Riesling, often made into quality dessert wine, or off-dry styles. Think exotic Middle Eastern & Moroccan cuisines which use nuts & dried fruits for pairings. Hummus anybody?
