Gewurztraminer: Main Image

Gewurztraminer is a white wine of personality—strongly perfumed, often strongly flavored, and quite full-bodied. A wine to conjure strong opinions for or against, it is nonetheless agreed by most to pair extremely well with Asian dishes due to its exotic musky spice profile.

Flavor Descriptors

The bouquet is all roses, lychee, and spice. On the palate it offers peach and apricot fruit and typically is quite soft and full-bodied with little balancing acidity. While it can be technically “dry,” it usually is viewed as a sweeter-style white due to its heavy perfume and fullness of fruit. It generally is not oaked.

Food Pairings

Spicy Asian fare (especially Vietnamese and Thai), charcuterie, pork, and chicken dishes.
