Gewürztraminer wine is unique and very distinctive, with it's intense lychee aroma and also its spicy taste - inherent in its name "Gewürz", which translates as 'spicy' in German. The spiciness itself is more like a light prickling sensation in the mouth, which make this wine very identifiable especially in a blind tasting.
The grape is available in a few countries around the world, but its main production is in the French wine region of Alsace. Gewürztraminer is a fantastic culinary wine for a number of dishes, classically paired with mild spicy oriental foods.
