USA: U.S. Gewurztraminer

What is US Gewürz?
Gewürztraminer is most closely associated with Alsace, where it reaches its enological apex in late harvest form—in styles that vary from dry to very sweet. US Gewürztraminer rarely achieves the intensity of varietal character found in wines from Alsace, nonetheless there are numerous delicious dry examples to be found.

Cooler regions in California often yield the best results for Gewürztraminer, in circumstances where this variety can ripen late and produce distinctive clove and lychee-like varietal flavors. Cool climate Oregon and even the Finger Lakes of New York also have a number of producers of good dry Gewürztraminer that will often be characterized by fresh acidity and lean structures.
