This is one of my favourite varieties, though rarely do I find Gewurztraminer that I like in Australia. Pipers Brook always produces consistently good wines, including traminer.

Alsace is the most famous region for producing Gewurztraminer. New Zealand is also producing some world class wines from this variety. Lawson Dry Hills produces consistently great Gewurztraminer, that I really enjoy.
