An aromatic mutation of Savagnin Rose, which itself is a colour mutation of Savagnin Blanc (Heida or Païen in Valais), Gewürztraminer takes its name from Gewürz (spice in German) and Traminer (Savagnin in Germany). Observed for the first time in 1827 in Rheingau (D), this mutation has multiplied and been propagated throughout the world. An early grape suited to cooler climates, Gewu?rztraminer is not widely grown in Switzerland, where it produces rich wines, with a powerful aroma of rose petals and lychees.
