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.

  • Sineann Celilo Vineyard Gewurztraminer 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Perfectly fine Gewurtz from Sineann in Newberg OR. Very floral nose with some more on the palate along with dried apricot, orange marmalade and just a hint of clove. The acidity is nice but not mouth puckering and the finish is fairly long, similar to a dessert wine. Read More

  • Sandra celebrated her '100 days until retirement' last night in style. ... an Oregon white blend (34% Gewurztraminer, 27% Riesling, 26% Pinot Gris, 10% Pinot Blanc and 3% Muscat) called Jezebel.  Feeling no pain at this point, we still had about 60 minutes until the movie started so we stopped in at a wine shop (Swirl & Sip) and tried several ...

  • Imagery Estate Winery Viognier Russian River Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Clear, very pale yellow in the glassvery close to white. Very floral, perfumey ... that I would associate with Gewurztraminer. Sure enough, lots of white stone fruit flavor on the tip of the tongue that morphs into a melon suggestion at the back. Also, a bit of spritz on the tip of the tongue. Good acid backbone gives this wine a refreshing... Read More

  • Over the years, multiple varieties have made the news for one reason or another. Some, like Gewurztraminer, suffer from difficult to pronounce names. Others suffer from identity challenges. Chardonnay anyone? Still more are actually difficult to get to a bottle in once piece without the high involvement of the dedicated growers to make quality w... Read More

  • Heinz Eifel Shine Gewurztraminer Rheinhessen 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Cayenne pepper, cut grass and green apple aromas. Lemon, green apple, lychee, honey, pear flavors greet the palate, continuing with tangerine and aloe. This may be a bit of an oxymoron, but for a simple wine its quite complex. Between the herbal green notes, warm citrus fruits and long tart finish with a hint of cream, its worth the experience.

  • 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!
