The Gerwürztraminer grape grows in Alsace and Germany. 'Gerwürz' means spicy and this wine has a pleasantly lingering spicy finish. It has fruity and flowery overtones. All of which compliment the Thanksgiving meal. It seems sweet, but the spiciness counterbalances the sweetness. Paired with the proper foods, it becomes the perfect compliment.
Gerwürztraminer is pronounced ga-verts-tra-meen-er. Hear it here.
