Pronounced “ga-VERTZ-trah-mee-ner,” it produces some of the most expressive and aromatic white wines in the world, defying traditional expectations with its bold personality. It was originally from Italy, a significant part of the Italian wine industry, Italian white wine to be specific, but has now become a global grape. 

What sets Gewürztraminer Singapore apart? Let’s uncork its secrets…

White Wine Gewurztraminer: An Aromatic Explosion 

Forget your typical white wine notes. Gewürztraminer is a riot of exotic aromas, like a tropical vacation in a glass. Think lychee, rose petals, Turkish Delight, and even hints of ginger and cinnamon. Its secret weapon? Linalool, a compound also found in lychee and lavender, is responsible for its distinctive perfume. 

Full-Bodied & Spicy

Don’t be fooled by the floral aromas. Gewürztraminer packs a punch with medium-to-full-bodied texture and often higher alcohol content. It can sometimes even exhibit a slight “phenolic grip” from the skins and seeds, adding complexity. To balance this richness, many Gewürztraminers retain some residual sugar, ranging from dry to off-dry to lusciously sweet. 

Cool Climate Craving

Unlike most grapes that thrive in hot sun, Gewürztraminer prefers cooler climates with moderate temperatures. This keeps its acidity levels lower, contributing to its fuller body and lower food pairing versatility. 

Food Pairing Fun

While Gewürztraminer’s bold flavors might seem intimidating, it’s surprisingly versatile. Think spicy Asian dishes, creamy cheeses, rich poultry, or even pungent goat cheese salads. Its sweetness also makes it a perfect dessert wine companion for fruit-based dishes. 

Global Grape

Though its origins lie in Alsace, France wine, Gewürztraminer has found a home in diverse regions like Germany, Italy, the US, and even New Zealand wine. Each region imparts its own unique character, offering a spectrum of styles to explore.
