Gewürtztraminer

 

Name of varietal: Gewürztraminer
 
Common synonyms: Traminer Musque, Traminer Parfume, Traminer Aromatique, Roter Traminer, Traminer Rose, Traminer Rosso, Termener Aromatico 
 
Parentage of the grape: Traminer, possibly Muscat
 
History of the grape: Evidence of the parent Traminer grape can be traced back to the Middle Ages, in the Tyrollean Alps in Alto Adige, where Italy is closest to Germany. Traminer isn’t known for having much of its own flare, but it does like to mutate, and it eventually became the perfumed clone we all know and most of us love. France and Italy began calling the grape by many of the above synonyms, but it wasn’t until the late 19th century that Alsatians started to call it Gewürztraminer (“gewürz” means spicy and/or perfumed) and not until 1973 that the name became official. 
 
It can be a bit difficult to grow since it buds very early in spring, which means the grapes become susceptible Read more »

  • Domaine Marcel Deiss Gewurtztraminer Vin d'Alsace 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A tad sweet. Starting to develop that nice gasoline type smell which I love on those aged Alsatian Rieslings. Good body, nice and full. Maybe this one could use a few more years? I went back to this one after two days of being open in the fridge and it was showing way better. Make sure you don't over-chill this one. Read More

  • I used to spend a LOT of time on snooth, but a job assignment took me away for awhile.  I am seeing some new faces, and some old.  As one who is catching up, I would like to hear from some new people here.   I think/hope we all share not only a love for wine, but a desire to share our experience.  Welcome, new Snoothers!
