The Gewurztraminer grape variety ('Gewurz' means 'spice') produces one of the most distinctive and unusual styles of white wine, highly aromatic and full-bodied, yet refreshing and fruity too. The dry, far eastern French region of Alsace, where this wine was sourced, is renowned for its weighty and opulent, yet often dry Gewurztraminers. The winemaker was Jean Michel Lihrmann of the Cave de Turckheim. This wine is unoaked.
Serve lightly chilled. Gewurztraminer can be enjoyed on its own, but it makes a brilliant match for food, especially Thai and Chinese cuisine, or try it with quiches and savoury flans, especially onion ones, or simply with good quality cheeses.
