Light yellow to golden colour. Has good body and is very easy to identify with its perfumed and exotic aromas of flowers and lychee, together with its unctuous texture. Gewürztraminer has a low natural acidity.
Flowers (roses, gardenias, jasmine), lychee, peach, mango, exotic spices.
Pairing for this variety
A great wine to enjoy as an aperitif, or with salads and vegetarian dishes. Gewürztraminer loves oriental cooking, especially sushi, curry and spicy food. It also complements fruit salads and desserts, an attribute shared by only a few varieties. If you’re having a cheese & wine evening, go with Swiss, Chevre or Boursin.
