FOOD AND WINE PAIRING :Apple Pie x Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer is a pink grape variety, of the Traminers family. It is also called aromatic pink savagnin.  Present in France in the vineyards of Alsace It is one of the noble grape varieties that can benefit from the Alsace Grand Cru appellation.

Gewürz means spicy and immediately, one end of the veil is lifted. The aroma and taste of Gewürztraminer are particularly expressive.  This grape variety has the irresistible scent of lychees, rose petals and succulent tropical fruits with a taste of black pepper. The succulent scents can sometimes frighten the wine drinker.

A Gewürztraminer is the best deal we have found to offer, especially if you add a little cinnamon to your traditional apple pie.

What better way to finish your dinner with a sweet apple sauce matched with Alsatian wine?
