Delicious but difficult to pronounce if you’re not familiar with it. So let’s start with that…
How do I pronounce Gewürztraminer?
That colour! The grapes are not green. They have a pinkish hue. It’s this colour that gives the wine it’s deep golden colour.
Notes of… Gewürztraminer has a rich heady nose. Think exotic. Lychee, apricot and rich tropical fruit. Mangos, lemon, peaches. Roses and passionfruit. And some even claim a slight waft of bacon.
What’s in a name? Gewürtz is the German word for spicy or aromatic. A seemly perfect name for the above array of aromas.
Growing Gewürztraminer. A cool climate with clay soil and a limestone base create a fantastic terroir for this grape to grow and gift us with a wine that is full-bodied with strong fruit and a good acidity.
Chill or not to chill? We suggest chilling your Gewürztraminer to lift the aromas and acidity.
