Gewürztraminer
gewuerztraminer
The name of the variety "Gewürztraminer" most likely originates from the Alto Adige winegrowing village of Tramin. “Traminer” was a term known throughout the entire German-speaking world as early as the thirteenth century. Today it is one of Alto Adige’s most popular wines. Its spectrum of scents, with notes of rose petals, cloves, lychees, and other tropical fruits, makes Gewürztraminer the absolute embodiment of an aromatic wine variety. With its intense color, comparatively high alcohol content, and luxuriant texture, Gewürztraminer is the epitome of a meditation wine.
