Gewurztraminer is an aromatic white wine grape variety that does its best in cooler climates and in Italy is widely grown in Trentino and Alto Adige with a natural high sugar content but Gewurztraminer wines are also made dry.
The Gewurztraminer is a very well known and a highly distinctive grape, on the nose and palate, like all the wines made from aromatic or partially aromatic grapes that make the wine a difficult food companion. Due to its structure and minerality, and the alcohol content of many interpretations of South Tyrol, the Gewurztraminer is an interesting wine to try with spicy food, with smoked salmon or blue cheese, exceptional as a meditation wine.
Gewurztraminer wines tend to have aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes.
