Best Gewurztraminer Wine

The Gewürztraminer grape was first grown in Northern Italy, where it produces a white wine of the same name. Today Gewürztraminers are produced in Alsace, Germany, New Zealand, America, Canada and many other regions. This grape grows well in a cool climate and most famously in Alsace, France.

Gewürztraminers range from pale peach to a deep golden tone in color and from bone-dry to dessert-sweet in style. This vibrant wine has mouth-watering acidity as well as aromas of flowers (especially roses), nutmeg, cloves and lychee nuts. Drink this crisp wine young because it generally ages only for about five years.

Gewürztraminer pairs well with many foods depending on the degree of sweetness. “Gewürtz is German for “spice," which is why this wine is often considered the best match for spicy dishes. Some terrific matches include beef bourguignonne, fresh fruit, cheese, fish, poultry, spicy foods, curries and Asian dishes.
