EASY TO ENJOY, NOT QUITE SO EASY TO PRONOUNCE
Say GA-WERTZ-TRAH-MEEN-ER slowly about three times and you will have mastered the pronunciation. And you will impress your local LCBO store staff or those that know about wine. Most of us in the business simply say GAWERTZ. This grape is adored by folks who like a dryish, aromatic, medium bodied white. Our version comes from the Baden region of southern Germany just across from Alsace, France where this variety thrives too. With its sensual bouquet of rose petals, spice and lychee notes, it pairs beautifully with Asian and spicy dishes. Enjoy with some Pad Thai, or just sniff and sip it solo, nicely chilled, on the deck while enjoying the tastes and sounds of summer.
