Top Rated Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer grapes

Originally grown in Alsace along the Rhine, between the Vosges and the Black Forest, this type of wine is more pungent and full-bodied than most other white wine varietals. The golden-yellow or copper-toned wine can vary in saturation of color, depending on the ripeness of the grape, which is naturally dark pink in color. Gewurztraminer has exotic, perfume-like notes of gardenia, rose petal, lychee, honeysuckle, peach and mango. The wine also has a heady aromatic scent and a bitter tendency. Below are the best Gewürztraminer we've tasted, starting with our highest rated wines.
