When looking for the perfect Gewürztraminer pairing, try to base your choices on harmony more than contrast. Opt for spiced, fruity, rich, or aromatic dishes. As it is undeniably fragrant itself, dry Gewürztraminer works extremely well with fragrant and spicy foods. Try it with spicy, ethnic foods, such as Schezwan dishes, Thai curries with coriander and lemongrass, Korean fried chicken, or Moroccan chicken.
You can almost treat a dry white wine Gewürztraminer like you would a red wine. This chameleon of a beverage can pair beautifully with a multitude of proteins, including chicken, pork, bacon, duck, crab, shrimp, turkey, and lamb.
It lends itself especially well in dishes that combine meat with dried fruits, such as a lamb and dried apricot tagine.
