Gewürztraminer (aka. Traminer, Traminer Musque)

Gewürztraminer’s direct and obvious charm has made it a popular varietal in almost every corner of the wine world. Excellent examples of ‘New World’ Gewürztraminer have emerged from British Columbia, Oregon, Washington State and in New Zealand, as well as from cooler microclimates in California and Australia. In Europe, distinct and interesting wines are Gewürztraminer based wines are produced in Austria, Germany, and northern Italy. The literal translation of the prefix (Gewürz) is ‘spice’, and its suffix (Traminer) refers to the Traminer grape, which was widely grown around the northern Italian town of Tramin until the 16th century. Although its origins are Italian, it is the ‘red’-skinned form of Traminer, known to the world as Gewürztraminer that have placed it on the world stage.

  • Kuhlmann-Platz Gewurztraminer 2015


    Another off-dry selection from the Kuhlmann-Platz label (bottled by a Hunawihr cooperative).

  • Kuhlmann-Platz Gewurztraminer 2014


    This Hunawihr Gewurztraminer is very tasty; an off-dry, apple-cinnamon flavoured quaff with a very noticeable scent of (wild) rosewater. Very easy drinking and one of the few wines I would recommend with most San Francisco-style Chinese, Thai and even Sushi (sans wasabi). Worth seeking out for the price 87 points. Read More

  • Looking for something special? There is an estate winery on Oliver, BC, called Silver Sage, that has what they call "The Flame". It's an apricot/peach Gewurtz with a VERY hot pepper in it. The first sip is sweet followed by hot. The longer the pepper is in it, the hotter it gets. Or take it out and it doesn't get hotter. Lasts up to a year in th...

  • The Gewurztaminer is a wonderful surprise to the palette and I believe it goes well with any menu. I was hooked the moment I went to the winery!
