Heinz Eifel Shine Rheinhessen Gewurztraminer 2015
Gewürztraminer’s sweetness may offset the spice in Asian cuisine. It goes well with cheese, and fleshy, fatty (oily) wild game. Smoked salmon is a particularly good match.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Heinz Eifel is a brand of German Riesling wines that are crafted from the highest quality grapes processed with only the most modern standards, techniques and technology. Unlike many larger German wineries, Heinz Eifel himself has control over the entire winemaking process — from vine to bottle.
Gewürztraminer, an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces wonderful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. Generally this grape grows well in cooler regions and its natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. Somm Secret—Because of a charming perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine for those who love sweet wines but want to venture into the realm of drier whites.
