Intensely aromatic variety
Well known in Alsace, where the term also designates the appellation of wines made from this grape variety. "Traminer" is in fact an aromatic white grape variety of Tramin (Northern Italy), a term to which is added "gewürz" which means "spicy" or "aromatic". And for good reason, the rarity of its powerful and very characteristic scents reminiscent of rose or lychee is prized. Aromas that are intense, with a rich bouquet. Gewürztraminer is vinified as a dry white wine or as a sweet wine in vendanges tardives (late harvests), or sélection grains nobles. It produces small yields, which makes the resulting wines highly valued.
