Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer, which is also called Red Traminer, is a white Traminer variety with slightly red berries. The exact descent is not clear (probably south Europe, maybe Egypt). The name comes from the village Tramin in Alto Adige, where this wine is grown since 11th century. In the winegrowing village Rhodt, in Pfalz, is a vineyard side with 400 years old Gewüztraminer vines. This heritage shows that Gewüztraminer is one of oldest vines that is still planted.

Gewürztraminer has a creamy texture. Honey notes, roses and Lychee are the typical aromas of this variety, also low acidy and spiciness.
