GEWURZTRAMINER Van Dieman Ranch Block 6, Lodi District 11, Lodi, California
Sometimes referred to as Gewürz or Traminer, is a white wine grape variety that performs best in cooler climates. It is known for its spicy characteristics. The characteristic of the wine, rather than any specific spice, is that there is a strong smell of lychees on the bouquet. This characteristic aroma means that Gewürztraminer is classified as an aromatic wine grape. As such it is one of the few wines that is suitable to be enjoyed with curry and other Asian foods. It also goes well with Munster cheese, and fleshy, fatty (oily) wild game. It is believed to be related to Viognier, another aromatic grape. It is not uncommon to notice some spritzig (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass). Please allow two weeks for delivery.
