Gewurztraminer

August 15, 2019

Gewurztraminer

This aromatic grape performs best in cooler climates, so it’s well suited to the higher altitude slopes of Mendoza. The grape has high natural sugar, so styles tend to be off dry, although excellent dry whites can also be made from this grape. Expect aromas of lychees, rose petals and passion fruit. Off dry styles offer a superb match to Asian cuisine.
