Gewürztraminer is a fussy grape, particularly in regards to soil and climate. Its rich aromas and tendency toward sweetness has put off some wine drinkers, but a well-balanced Gewürztraminer with developed acidity can match those rich aromas with decadent and exotic flavors that can stand up to spicy and sharp foods that overpower other wines.

Spicy and sweet, the creaminess of this appetizer or main dish pairs nicely with the acidity of an unoaked chardonnay. From WineTable Executive Chef Harry Haff.
