Gewürztraminer is an aromatic white, originating as a green-skinned grape from the village of Tramin, in South Tyrol, the German-speaking province in northern Italy. The variety travelled to France in 1780 and is now a pink to red skin-colour grape, still used to produce the usually off-dry white wine. Gewürztraminers are very lychee on the nose with aromas of rose, other florals and passionfruit, sweetening the wines. There’s nothing to worry about if you spot some spritz (fine bubbles) on the inside of your glass. Enjoy the sweetness of the wine, it nicely offsets the spice in Asian dishes, fleshy, oily wild game and Munster cheese (or any smelly cheeses).
