The gewürz grape is a floral variety with lots of unique scents and smells. The 2003 Valckenberg Gewürztraminer Pfalz fits into this category perfectly by reflecting all that is Gewürztraminer at a cost of roughly USD $11.99.
This is a white wine with a rosey peach nose and a pale yellow color. Gewürz is German for “spice,” and again the Valckenberg fits the bill with a lightly spicy taste which pairs well with spicy foods, poultry and barbecue making it fit great for Thanksgiving. As we’re coming up on the holiday season, food will be the center of attention and Gewürztraminer will pair well with it, so why not try it?
The 2003 Valckenberg Gewürztraminer Pfalz has a bit acidic aftertaste but goes down smooth and fruity. For those, like myself, who are not huge Chardonnay drinkers, you’ll find this white wine will become the perfect alternative. You’ll receive a bit of the acidity of the whiter wines without the bite or bitter hit to the back of the pallet. The Gewürztraminer finishes dry and clean.
The sweetness of a white, to a few of us, is a bit abrasive for some meals while the Gewürztraminer compliments them without destroying the tastes of your foods. Given the slightly spicy bite of this Valckenberg Gewürztraminer Pfalz, you’ll find it works best with a spicier food like a Mexican dinner or a trip through New Orleans.
Of course, Valckenberg Gewürztraminer Pfalz will pair well with many German foods. This wine arrives with 12% ABV.
