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.

  • Sokol Blosser Evolution Sparkling NV

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly nutty, honeyed aromas of green apple and peach. Fresh and lively palate with zesty citrus notes of tangerine, grapefruit and lemon with some stone fruit coming through as well, soft mousse and bright acidity make for a fun, easy drinking selection Read More

  • 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
