Gewürztraminer (pron. Geh/voortz/trah/mee/na) is an early-ripening, white grape variety.
This tricky to cultivate variety demands to be picked at just the right moment to achieve a desirable level of aromatics in the resulting wine.
An exceptionally fragrant wine variety, rose petals, lychee, cinnamon, and ginger are characters commonly found in Gewürztraminer from New Zealand.

The resulting blended Gewürztraminer wine shows delicate and classic varietal aromas of rose petal, quince and ginger spice.
The aromatic intensity of Gewürztraminer is a great match to a Thai red curry with King prawns, ginger and coriander.
