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.

Gewürztraminer on Snooth

  • Kuhlmann-Platz Gewurztraminer 2014

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Carlisle Sonoma Valley Compagni Portis 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pale yellow color. Fruity, flowery nosemint, orange blossoms. Apricot and tangerine on the tip of the tongue. Some Gewurz spicethe blend really settles that down. Some mineral hints, mid-palate. Very nice acid refreshment. Read More

  • Chateau Ste Michelle Gewurztraminer Columbia Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Good representation of the varietal. Melon, mango, peach (tropicals were good), a little white pepper and clove at the end. Slightly sweet, but not too much, and plenty of acidity to the aftertaste. Good wine - perfect for asian dishes and Easter ham. Paul 87 points Read More

  • To press or not to press? That is NOT the question. Rarely does anything in ... ... especially Viognier and Gewurztraminer, tend to have higher tannins in the skins so in these cases additional skin contact could bring in bitterness which will then have to be fined out later through PVPP, Gelatin, or Isinglass treatments. For Rosé, the amount... Read More

  • Lazy Creek Vineyards Gewürztraminer Anderson Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly floral honeysuckle and thistle flower aromas with baked apple notes and hints of tea leaf on the nose. More tea leaf on the palate with good ripe acidity, this turns quite ripe and freshly fruity in the mouth with white peach and melon flavors and a hint of lemon zest and oak on the finish. 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!
