Default How do you pronounce Gewürztraminer?

I know this is sort of but...

Srsly; How do you pronounce "Gewürztraminer"? I'm thinking about picking up a kit to make a batch of this as my wife and I eat a lot of spicy food but I need to know how to say it first.

If anyone can offer a phonetic spelling or an explanation of the pronunciation I'd be forever grateful.

Thanks.

Nice thing about German, very few loan words. So, pronunciation rules actually exist.

It depends on how many drinks I have had when I try to pronounce it but kilted brewer has it right.
