If you’re thinking "Gew-what?!" – you might not be the only one. This variety that originates from Germany is one of the world’s great white wine styles, but doesn’t get the street cred it deserves with consumers.
It always helps to be able to pronounce the wine without feeling (and sounding) like a moron – it’s geh-vairtz-trah-mee-ner. If you think that’s a mouthful, wait ’til you try the wine!
We’ll save you the waffle about aromas of rose petals, ginger, lychees, feijoas and all the other wine lingo that leaves you wondering if you’re in a fruit shop or florist. Here’s the deal – it’s a medium bodied, moreishly rich white that leans to a sweeter style of white (we sometimes think of it as the grown up version of Moscato!) that needs to be served slightly chilled and absolutely paired with spicy cuisine, especially Thai, Indian or Chinese!
