Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Gewürztraminer
Traditional (planted before 1900) | 49 HA in Switzerland (0,34%)

Aromatic mutation of Savagnin Rose, itself a color mutation of Savagnin Blanc (Heida or Pagan in Valais), Gewürztraminer takes its name from the word Gewürz (spice in German) and Traminer (name of Savagnin in Germany). It is an early variety adapted to cool climates that is not cultivated much in Switzerland. Gewürztraminer produces intense and aromatic white wines, which remind the nose of the scent of rose, lychee and gingerbread.
