Gewurztraminer

Gewürztraminer is an aromatic wine grape variety, used in white wines, and performs best in cooler climates. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as Gewürz, and in French it is written Gewurztraminer (without the umlaut). Gewürztraminer is a variety with a pink to red skin colour, which makes it a "white wine grape" as opposed to the blue to black-skinned varieties commonly referred to as "red wine grapes". The variety has high natural sugar and the wines are white and usually off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees. Indeed, Gewürztraminer and lychees share the same aroma compounds. Dry Gewürztraminers may also have aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes. It is not uncommon to notice some spritz (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass).

Gewürztraminer's sweetness may offset the spice in Asian cuisine. It goes well with Hirtenkäse, Münster cheese, and fleshy, fatty (oily) wild game. Smoked salmon is a particularly good match.

It shows best with food, preferably spicy.

Stony Hill 2013 Gewurztraminer, Napa Valley   Winery notes: " We think our Gewurztraminer is the perfect accompaniment to our California cooking, which is so dominated by seriously well-flavored Mexican and Asian food.  The 2013 is  straw in color with a clean aroma redolent of grapefruit, rose petals, and of course, the Asian Lychee.  When you taste this wine you'll feel a crisp freshness on the palate that cuts...
