Gewurztraminer- (geh-VEHRTZ-trah-mee-ner) Sweet or dry please! The grape berries itself are a pink, mauve color, but this is a white wine.
This variety is located in the coolest location in our vineyard, where the terrain dips down and the breeze hits it just right. Gewurztraminer is unfussy about soil but does enjoy sunshine and cooler areas.
Gewurz means "spice" so it shouldn't surprise you that you will find flavors of spice and exotic fruit. Cinnamon, lilac, orange blossom, citrus peel, tea, and honeysuckle are all found in Gewurztraminer. Pairs very nice with Asian dishes that have a touch of ginger, lemon grass and coconut!
