The Gewürztraminer variety typically produces semi-dry to sweet wines with rose petal and lichi aromas, low acidity, and an oily texture. If you’ve previously tasted a Gewürztraminer like that, be prepared for something completely different with this wine! This Fűszeres Tramini—as we call the grape in Hungarian—from the Cseri winery stands out as a different version. It is not as intensely aromatic, has a lighter body, and a fresher, crisper acidity. The Pannonhalma region stands out as one of Hungary’s top white wine regions, even though it is small, with just a handful of wineries. On the nose, this wine is intriguing, exotic, and seductive … just like the mermaid on the label. It has aromas reminiscent of sage, tarragon, clementines, and roses. On the palate, it is dry (with 12.5 percent alcohol), with a unique mixture of fresh acidity, medium body, and a nice almond-like bitter finish. This is a style of white wine which one rarely comes across. Enjoy it next to sushi, Thai curries, and tropical fruit-based dishes.
