One of Germany’s best known varieties, the German Gewürztraminer is naturally high in sugar and is typically found in the Rhine to Alsace regions of Germany. These pink and red skinned fruit hold the name Gewürztraminer which literally means “spice traminer” or “perfumed traminer”.
- Great balance of acid and sugar
- The pinkish fruit gives the juice a very white or slightly red color
- Very floral and full of spice
- Crisp flavor with very identifiable sweetness
- Typically off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees
- When produced to a dryer scale, Gewurz may also have aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes.
- It is not uncommon to notice some carbonation (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass).
- One of Germany’s best known varieties
- Wine responds well to 6-18 months of aging
- We typically add wine conditioner to this at bottling
- We find that it blends nicely with Riesling and Chardonnay
- We do not oak this wine
- We typically produce this to be dry, but it can be made off-dry
