Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer is a wine produced from the homonymous aromatic white grape variety, which gives life to wines of great originality and intense aromas; it is particularly characterized by a fruity, floral and spicy aromatic profile. Its name “Gewürztraminer” can be translated from German as "spicy Traminer" (or aromatic Traminer), where the word “spicy” recalls one of its olfactory characteristics, while “Traminer” is the German name of the Termeno area, in South Tyrol.

Gewürztraminer, due to its name, is thought to be native of Alto Adige/South Tyrol, even if in France, another great area for this grape variety, its paternity is claimed because of the similarities with the local variety Savagnin, grape of the Jura wine region from which the so-called “vin jaune” derives. In Alsace, in particular, Gewürztraminer wines are more intense on the nose and on the palate, and are capable of enhancing even structured dishes. The characteristics of the Alto Adige/South Tyrol versions, on the other hand, are more delicate and suitable for appetizers and fish-based main courses, or even Asian dishes.

In addition to these two great areas, other expressions of Gewürztraminer can be found in South Tyrol in Appiano, Val Venosta and Valle d'Isarco and in Trentino in Lavis, Val di Cembra and Valdadige; each of these places originates different and intriguing versions of the aromatic grape. Gewürztraminer is a grape variety that creates wines with good aging potential, even if it does not offer a marked acidity generally. In Alsace, greater acidity is achieved and the grapes produce extraordinary late harvests (“vendanges tardives”) or raisin wines from grapes attacked by botrytis cinerea, the so-called noble rot.
