Gewürztraminer is an old pink-skinned white wine grape which has one of the most distinctive aromatic characters. According to the DNA analysis, it is native to south-west Germany, but it is more likely the homeplace of it to be the village Tramin in the Alto Adige region. Gewürz means "spice" in German and the aromas and the flavours evolve around. The flavour profile is often described as lychee, rose petal, Turkish delight, perfume with its full texture, low acidity with notes of mango, peach and apricot and spicy ginger, cinnamon taste. The best examples of Gewürztraminer are found in Alsace as it has been chosen to be one of the four allowed grapes for the production of Grand Cru, which make rich and full-bodied wines. It makes also perfect late-harvest and botrytis style very sweet wines called Sélection de Grains Nobles. Outside Europe, it has plantings mainly in Australia called just Traminer, some in New Zealand and the Unite States.
