Gewuztraminer is a well known match to foods with big flavours such a spicy and smoked foods.
The reason is, this grape offers expressive and distinct flavour so there for they can stand up to the big flavours of food other without over powering. I love this wine with smoked cheese and fish, as as well as the lovely fragrant flavours of Thai foods.
This could be a new grape to you and you may be wary, however it could be the best find of the year! This is the beauty of wine so many grapes and styles of wines to explore.. come along for the journey!
