Gewurztraminer is a particularly aromatic selection of an old grape variety that has always been recognized in Alsace as Traminer rose. Etymologically, the name Gewurztraminer literally translates as “spicy Traminer”.
Gewurztraminer's colour is intense, yellow with light golden highlights. The red colour of the grapes naturally influences the colour of the wine. The bouquet is intense and complex, offering an explosion of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (notably rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, peppermint, cloves and pepper). With Gewurztraminer, the freshness is always more subtle than with other Alsace grape varieties.
