Sommelier's Notes

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates, which allow the grapes to develop good balancing acidity. This is a necessary attribute of any successful Gewürztraminer, be it dry or sweet: indeed, there are some incredible late-harvest and botrytised examples produced these days.



Age of the vine: 15 years


Ageing potential: Can be kept 10 years.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve 16 C - 18 C. Good match with exotic dishes and with full-bodied cheeses platters and fruit-based desserts.
