spice traminer

tuesday, march 9: a day that included a stressful team meeting, eye-crossing computer time and hours of math studying is topped off with a nice, light glass of "spice traminer," better known as "gewurtztraminer." it's a wine that is a result of a hard-to-grow variety of grape that appears to be a close cousin to savagnin blanc; the spice traminer is a rose-skinned variety, and may be considered a musque` (muscat-like variation -- which means very aromatic). to quote snooth.com: "the wine tends to be wildly aromatic full of honeysuckles and lychee with a thick texture and high potential sugar which makes it an ideal candidate for a lightly sweet to desert styled wine." in other words, just my type. i sit and relax, learning about the history of this wine while feeling the stress unfurl and release from my shoulders.
