Aromas of orange blossom and rose hips open to lychee and cardamom. Overarching notes of exotic baking spices meld with ripe orange flavors on the finish.
Floral gewürztraminers play so nicely with spicy food that you'll want to reach for this bottle the next time you're at a Thai or Indian restaurant. Try coconut curry sauces, spicy thai basil spring rolls, or a Moroccan spice rubbed chicken dish and you'll see what we mean. Even an every day pizza jazzed up with ham and pineapple will be a delight with this dry gewurz.
