Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer (Gewürztraminer in German-language areas) is a pink-skinned grape variety that produces some of the world's most distinctive aromatic wines. Its perfumed style is somewhat polarising; fans adore its intense floral scent and sweet-spice flavours, while detractors lament its low acidity and lack of subtlety.

Literally translated, Gewürztraminer means "spiced Traminer" (Traminer Aromatico in Italian). The second part of the word suggests the grape may have origins in Tramin (Termeno) in the Alto Adige region.

Synonyms include: Traminer Aromatico, Traminer Musqué, Traminer, Gentil Aromatique, Savagnin Rose Aromatique, Gelber Traminer.

Food matches for Gewurztraminer include:

  • Stir-fried pork with pickled plum (dry)
  • Crayfish laksa (dry)
  • Pannacotta (sweet)
