Shop for Sweet Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer is a highly aromatic, perfumed white (gewürz means “spiced” in German) that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Gewurz (most often referred to by its shortened name) is the most widely planted variety in the Alsace region of France, where it reaches the height of its expression. While Gewurz can be a sweet wine (in late-harvest wines labeled Vendange Tardive), the bulk of it is fermented dry. In its pedestrian form, Gewürz is meant to be drunk young when the exotic fruit flavors are at their peak; not so in Alsace where these heady wines possess a concentrated structure capable of long aging.

One of the most distinctive white wine varieties, Gewürz is so heavily scented that it smells deceivingly sweet, even though it tastes dry. Deeply colored, low in acidity, but high in alcohol, this full-bodied white is well-endowed with explosive flavors of litchis, roses, Asian pears and the telltale pie “spice” duo of cloves and nutmeg.

The Anderson Valley of California, parts of Oregon and Washington, and New York’s Finger Lakes are regions producing excellent domestic versions.

  2. Trimbach Gewürztraminer

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#83659

    Pale yellow-gold. Fresh, lively aromas and flavors of smoky duck sausage, cinnamon, rose petal and grapefruit. Very long, rich and dense Gewürz that closes pleasantly lifted and spicy. I like how light on its feet this is, despite its richness. Improves greatly with a little aeration, so make sure you leave it in the glass for about five minutes before you start drinking, or decant ahead.

    Attractively fused florals and white peaches with lychees and apricots. The palate has a very fleshy feel with rich and juicy texture and smooth peaches and apples. Lightly sweet, full-ish finish. Drink now.

  3. Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#77996

    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2021
    Classic notes of lychee, white tea and honeysuckle extend from nose to finish in this gorgeously perfumed, fruity white. Just a lip-smacking shade off dry, it’s a juicy, exuberantly fresh sip that’s perfect as an aperitif or accompaniment to delicate spiced foods. It’s a fantastic bang-for-your-buck find that’s best enjoyed young.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#94221

    The wet spring and hot summer of 2018 brought this gewurztraminer to a heightened state of generosity. This is not a complex, long-lived wine. It’s just remarkably healthy. Having returned to this bottle for three days, taken in by its refreshing cut of acidity, its stony minerality and bright herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, I finally gave up and just wrote, “Ooof, that’s good.” It’s brisk, bright, generous and floral, with a meadow freshness.

    Fleshy peach and ripe, juicy pear on the nose get a dose of freshness from deliberate spritz on the palate of this wine. Citrus zest and pith add edge to the off-dry, fresh and fruity palate.
