Country: France

Gewürztraminer is a white grape that is widely grown in Alsace. Wines made from this grape have a characteristic floral aroma and a complex flavour that perfectly matches foods such as shellfish.
The grape is closely related to Traminer. Some of the new world plantings of this grape have been particularly successful.
