Gewürztraminer – Elegant to Heavy Wines
The Gewürztraminer grape variety produces fine wines which can range anywhere from elegant to heavy, depending upon soil conditions and the harvest yield. All wines made from the Gewürztraminer grape, however, have mild acidity in common. Depending upon their quality, this grape will produce straw coloured to golden yellow wines. Sometimes luxurious, sometimes delicate, or with a bouquet reminiscent of roses: Gewürztraminer wines are multi-faceted. Some of the notes common to these wines are: acacia blossom, honey, marzipan, violet, bitter orange, quince jelly and passionfruit. Noble sweet auslese wines made from Gewürztraminer grapes have very good maturation potential and may be stored in the bottle for many years.
