Gewurtztraminer is this variety's full name but it is more commonly called traminer in Australia. Traminer is an aromatic wine and one of the more memorable varieties with its pungent floral fragrances. Traminer is an early drinking wine with a crisp acid finish.

Traminer has some pinkish and purple colour in the grapes, however the wines are white. Traminer is straw to light gold in colour with a sparkle finish.

Intense floral scents of violets, rose, lavender and perfume are common and may well be overpowering to some. Lychee, lime, passionfruit and tropical notes will show through in warmer climates. This variety has a crisp acid finish and presents very clean to the palate.
