Born in Alsace, France, in the 19th century as a mutation of Traminer (or Savagnin) , Gewürztraminer became popular in its home region, and spread from there into Germany and Austria. It is still primarily grown in Alsace, with significant plantings in Germany, Austria and Italy, with significant amounts grown, outside of Europe, in California (mostly), Australia and South Africa. The variety has high natural sugar and the wines are white and usually off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees, roses and spices like ginger. The name gewürztraminer means "aromatic" or "spicy" traminer, and it is indeed very highly aromatic - sometimes to a fault.
