Description

This highly expressive white wine is renowned for its explosive aromatics that rocket out of the glass. Fruit-dominant notes of lychees, marmalade, passion fruit, roses, and grapefruit pith are so entrancing that Gewürztraminer is commonly mistaken to be sweet. In reality, this wine is usually off-dry and some of the best examples are distinctly dry. This pink- to red-skinned grape is not itself a unique variety, but rather an extraordinarily fragrant clone of Savagnin (also called Traminer) known as Savagnin Rosé or Gewürztraminer. The Traminer variety was named after the village of Tramin that resides in a German-speaking province in northern Italy. “Gewürz” is German for spice or seasoning, and serves as an appropriate prefix to a grape that is nothing if not potently aromatic.

Despite the German influence clearly present in its name, Gewürztraminer is not grown nearly as much in Germany as it is in Alsace, France, where it remains the most popular white wine of the region. The comparatively colder climate in Germany leads to a more toned down fruit flavor in the grapes. Gewürz made in Germany is generally more dry, less spicy, and with more subdued fruit character than other examples.

Our German Gewürztraminer is light-medium in body with a floral character and packed with playful notes of peach, lychee, and honey. An off-dry white wine with no oak presence and an easily approachable alcohol content of 11.5% by volume.

The Estate Series Gewürztraminer is a fantastic daytime wine that can match any playful activity under the sun with its own sprightly energy. With a relatively restrained alcohol level, this wine is perfect to start off with in the afternoon and keep you perky into the evening. Excellent alongside a midday snack of dried fruit and soft cow’s milk cheeses.
