Gewurztraminer

Many grape names redirect here. For the list, see below: Synonyms.Gewürztraminer [ɡəˈvʏɐtstʁaˈmiːnɐ][p] is an aromatic wine grape variety, used in white wines, and performs best in cooler climates. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as Gewürz, and in French it is written Gewurztraminer (without the umlaut). Gewürztraminer is a variety with a pink to red skin colour, which makes it a "white wine grape" as opposed to the blue to black-skinned varieties commonly referred to as "red wine grapes". The variety has high natural sugar and the wines are white and usually off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees. Indeed, Gewürztraminer and lychees share the same aroma compounds.

    • Pairing Wine and Cranberry Sauce, Chestnut Stuffing, Cream Corn

      Can we be honest? Holiday turkey dinner is just an excuse for most of us to chow down on our favourite side dish, whether it’s cranberry sauce, chestnut stuffing or sweet potatoes. Often they have more interesting flavours than that dry old bird in the middle of the table. So please, let’s stop kidding ourselves with wine matches for turkey and focus on those pocket cravings.

    • What is the Story About OCP Narrative Red and White?

      Okanagan Crush Pad keeps telling us that “Wine is Narrative“. Every wine tells a story. Some stories though are more interesting than others. I think the more specific a place, the more the terroir can speak through the wine. While there is nothing wrong with wines where the grapes are sourced from widely separated areas, maybe the story is harder to decipher.
