Bodegas Pirineos Gewurztraminer 2015 (6x75cl)

This wine is a delicate yellow colour with hints of golden straw.  The aromas are floral with the predominant notes being jasmine and honeysuckle.  There is also some stonefruit influence including ripe peaches and a little spice. It is dry and crisp with citrus flavours and a pleasant mineralit with a good but noticeable level of acidity. Its finish is  very elegant and crisp. This wine works tremendously well with spicy dishes such as Thai food  - alternatively why not try it with a spicy paella?!

Tramin Nussbaumer Gewurz 2015 - Feb 2018 Decanter review

Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious 3 Bicchieri 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.

The grapes are grown in a few select vineyards above the town of Tramin. The vines are trained to both the traditional Pergola system as well as the modern Guyot system and are 20 years old. The soil type is clay.

The grapes were crushed and briefly macerated to extract the aromatic characteristics of the grape. After pressing, the must was left to ferment at 18°C to 20°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine rested on the fine lees for 11 months, until bottled.

One of Italy's most awarded and elegant wines with intense aromas of rose petal, cinnamon and ripe tropical fruit with a touch of spice. Rich, with a full bodied texture and a balancing acidity which leads to a long, sustained and elegant finish.

A versatile wine which accompanies pork chops, veal and rich poultry dishes or Thai inspired cuisine.

This wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Cave De Hunawihr Gewürztraminer Reserve 2016 (1x75cl)

A beautiful and bright yellow with deep gold tint. The nose has complex flavours of fresh almond and rose, opening up to a nice touch of crystallized fruits and fresh grape. A deep and generous palate, with the elegant aromas of the nose. The balance is well set by the freshness and the sweetness is not dominant. A nice, delicate medium dry wine with a long and spicy aftertaste dominated by hints of pepper and rose.

Franz Haas Gewürztraminer 2016 (1x 75cl)

The Haas family has been growing grapes in Montagna in the province of Bolzano in the Alto Adige for generations. However, it is only with Franz, the current proprietor, that they have begun to produce and bottle quality wines. Franz studied at Geisenheim before working as a broker of Italian wines into the German market. After several years, he took over the running of the family business. Franz Haas goes to tremendous lengths to grow good grapes and then strives to preserve the flavours of the fruit during winemaking. As a result, the wines that he produces are infused with great character and show a rare purity and balance on the palate.

The climate is Mediterranean rather than continental. The summers are very hot and the winters quite cold, as the weather is not moderated by any nearby water. In the summer, Bolzano is one of the hottest cities in Italy, despite being only 70 kilometres from the Austrian border, as the heat is trapped in the mountainous valley. Gewurztraminer grows on the hills of Montagna, Gleno, Pinzano, and Mazzon. The vineyards are south and south west facing at an altitude of 350-650 metres above sea level. The Gewürztraminer vines are all cultivated with the Guyot method.

After a brief period of steeping on the grape skins, the must is fermented at low temperatures in steel vats. Subsequently the wine matures on its yeast with frequent battonage (by keeping the yeast in suspension) for about six months before bottling.

This Gewürztraminer has an intense golden colour with a deep bouquet of complex fragrances such as lychees, orange peels, cloves, nutmeg and roses. The wine needs a while in the glass to highlight its qualities. On the palate it is stimulating thanks to its structure, freshness and vivacity with a very persistent and slightly bitter aftertaste.

This wine is perfect when served with pate, white meat, grilled shellfish and numerous Asian dishes and spices.

Skillogalee Hand-Picked Gewurztraminer 2015 (1x 75cl)

When Dave and Diana Palmer left the UK, it was supposed to be a three-year stint in Papua New Guinea, where Dave had found a job. Six years later, work took them to Canberra until, three years further on, Dave resigned to set up his own business. By this point, Skillogalee had already entered their lives, mainly because they’d drunk plenty of it with the eldest son of the owners, and sold it at a festival. Then they heard that the winery was up for sale…so naturally they sold the house and the sports car, packed up the kids and the cat, and moved to South Australia.

What drew them to this small corner of the Clare Valley? Beyond the wines, it was possibly the mature, established vineyards, beautifully contoured and equipped to produce everything from aromatic Riesling and Gewürztraminer to full-flavoured Cabernet and Shiraz, plus lusciously sweet liqueur Muscat. But they were following in earlier English footsteps too. Skillogalee was given its name by Lancashire-born explorer John Horrocks after a troubled expedition into the Flinders Ranges when skillogalee – a Celtic name for a thin gruel – was all they had left to eat. Meanwhile, Trevarrick – Skillogalee’s finest Riesling – comes from the property’s original name, Trevarrick Farm, given to it in 1851 by Cornish miner John Trestrail – who built the stone cottage which still serves as Skillogalee’s cellar door.

Skillogalee crafts their Gewurztraminer in the classic style – textural, aromatic and spicy with a crisp finish. The 2015 growing season was relatively warm and dry but late on we experience the onset of cool autumn nights allowing the fruit develop full flavoured and pristine fruit with good natural acid.

The Gewurztraminer vines at Skillogalee are grown using minimal intervention and sustainable farming practices to minimise the impact on our environment. The wine was made on-site at the Skillogalee winery.

The wine is pale straw yellow in appearance with green tinges. Exotic aromatics of orange blossom and quince with ginger spice and orange zest follow through onto the palate which is slippery and round with fruit sweetness, balanced by refreshing, juicy acidity and a lingering, dry finish.

A fantastic food matching wine, spanning most genres: top of the list should be lightly-spiced, contemporary Asian food, fresh summertime salads and flavoursome white meat dishes.
