Heinrich Roter Traminer 2016 (12 bottle case)
Gewürztraminer, with its unmistakable character and pronounced aromatics, is one of the most distinctive white grape varietals in the world. Originating from the wine-rich regions of Alsace, it has since found homes in various wine-producing areas, from Italy's South Tyrol to New Zealand's cooler climates. The name "Gewürztraminer" translates to "spicy traminer," hinting at its complex flavor profile that includes notes of lychee, rose petal, and sometimes a hint of ginger or cinnamon. This wine's full-bodied nature, coupled with a slightly off-dry palate, makes it a favorite for those who appreciate wines that offer a harmonious balance of sweetness and acidity. Its deep golden hue and lush texture further add to its appeal, making Gewürztraminer a varietal that's both a visual and sensory delight.
Gewürztraminer is a distinctive white wine variety, known for its powerful aroma profile and characteristically pronounced lychee, rose, and sometimes spicy notes. The name "Gewürztraminer" translates to "spiced Traminer", highlighting its aromatic and flavorful appeal. The grape's pink to red skin gives the wine a deep golden hue. Its wines tend to have higher alcohol content, with a rich, full-bodied texture and a slight sweetness, although dry versions are also produced. The complexity of Gewürztraminer's aromatic compounds makes it a wine that's both unique and instantly recognizable to enthusiasts.
The Alsace region of France is perhaps the most renowned for its outstanding Gewürztraminer wines. Here, the grape thrives in the mineral-rich soils and cool climate, producing wines of exceptional depth and aromatic intensity. The Alto Adige region in Italy and parts of Germany also have a reputation for crafting noteworthy Gewürztraminer wines. Outside of Europe, regions like New Zealand's Marlborough, Oregon in the USA, and parts of Australia's cooler climates have also garnered attention for their expressions of this grape variety.
While the best-known Gewürztraminer wines come from Alsace, with labels like Domaine Zind-Humbrecht, Trimbach, and Domaine Weinbach leading the pack, popularity is also surging for New World expressions. Oregon's Elk Cove and Montinore Estate, as well as New Zealand's Lawson's Dry Hills, are increasingly finding favor among enthusiasts for their balanced and vibrant renditions of this aromatic varietal.
For those seeking exceptional value, Alsace, once again, often delivers. Brands like Hugel & Fils offer high-quality Gewürztraminer wines at accessible price points. Additionally, exploring Gewürztraminer from emerging wine regions, such as Chile or parts of Washington State, can lead to discovering wines of impressive quality that won't break the bank.
Gewürztraminer's aromatic richness makes it a superb match for equally aromatic dishes. Its natural affinity lies with Asian cuisine, particularly dishes that incorporate ginger, lemongrass, or spicy heat like Thai curries. The wine's pronounced aromatics and slight sweetness also make it a prime candidate for pairing with Moroccan tagines, Indian curries, or spiced duck dishes. For a cheese pairing, Munster, a strong cheese from Alsace, is a traditional choice, but other pungent cheeses can also complement this wine beautifully.
