Gewurztraminer is a white wine with a distinct spicy and perfumed nose (“gewurz” means spice in German) that has enjoyed increased popularity in the last few years although it has been cultivated for centuries. “Gewurz,” as it is affectionately known, is often chosen as a spicy alternative to Riesling.
Gewurztraminer is produced in several countries and regions that particularly have cooler climates. It is mostly found in the Alsace region of France, Washington State, the Anderson Valley in California and the Finger Lakes of New York.
The tasting notes of Gewurztraminer are as exotic as the name implies. Aside from classic fruit notes such as grapefruit, pear, and apricot, Gewurztraminer is also laced with Lychee, clove, nutmeg, and rose characteristics. Gewurztraminer is often dry in spite of the deceptive sweet nose it may carry.
Gewurztraminer pairs very well with a wide variety of dishes. It’s a great wine for pork roast, Asian and Indian dishes (particularly where curry is a main ingredient), and it is a splendid partner for Muenster cheese.
