Our Gewürztraminer is an aromatic wine with a lush floral character. Tropical fruit flavors of mango and lychee come together on the front followed by notes of sweet ginger.
Gewürztraminer is one of the Noble Grapes* and gets its unique name from the tiny village of Tramin, located in the German speaking part of northern Italy. Cold fermentation and acidity give this wine its crisp flavor.
Recommended Serving Temperature: Chilled at 45°F
"Gewürz" is German for “spice,” so for pairing, think of dishes that have ingredients like ginger, clove, or curry. Those flavors will beautifully enhance with the similar flavor compounds in the wine. Gewürztraminer is also semi-sweet, and the sweet nuances of lychee will offset any bite of spiciness. Try with our Red Curry Shrimp & Pineapple recipe made with Fischer & Wieser Dr. Foo’s Thai Red Curry Sauce.
*Noble Grapes: A group of 18 red and white grape varieties that cover the total array of wine characteristics and traditionally are recognized for being some of the most widely planted grapes producing some of the highest quality wines.
