Top 10 wines in the UK press

Morrisons Signature Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France 2013

m_sig_gewurztraminerDavid Williams, writing in The Guardian, recommended three wines made with Gewürztraminer – a grape he said can make wines that are “extravagantly musky, with scents of roses and lychees spiced with ginger, while in the mouth they err on the expansive, the billowing, the viscous.”

He said: “It’s a combination that could have been designed for gelatinous, aromatic Chinese food – although winegrowers in Alsace, the region most associated with Gewurztraminer (sans umlaut in these parts) traditionally had local dishes such as choucroute with pork and sausages in mind. Morrisons’ off-dry own-label is a Turkish delightful bargain for spicy Asian or hearty Alsatian food; for a last days of winter splurge, try the giddy intensity of Zind-Humbrecht Grand Cru Hengst 2012 (£35, The Wine Society).”

Price: £7.99, Morrisons

  1. I love Gewürztraminer, I usually drink it without food is difficult to pare it, sometimes I drink it with fish
    Thank you for the suggestion of paring it with spicy Asian food, I will definitely try
