Homemade Gewürztraminer Wine

A big shout-out to my friend, who gifted me with two bottles of wine, one red and one white. It puts me in mind to make my own wine; I have fond memories of a plum wine I used to make. The white one, which I used mostly in a Jamie Oliver chicken stew recipe, is made with Gewürztraminer grapes (a dark skinned grape that makes white wine, and is a European varietal); he and his father together made these wines. The rest of it I drank with meals. I can tell that it is a home-made wine, there is a "flavour" to it, that does not exist in commercial wines (and existed in my own homemade wines). But, still, thanks!
