Gewürztraminer is one of the main grapes grown in the Alsace region of France.
My wife Liz and I traveled the Alsace region in May of 2008 and it is one of the things you should put on your bucket list if you have not done so.
This wine goes great with seafood like, BBQ'd oysters on the half shell, sauteed prawns and scallops in garlic.
Further I would drink it with BBQ'd chicken.
This is a wine worth buying, serve cold and crisp.
