Pale straw green color. Fruity, floral aromas of elderflower, lychee and dried apricot, and garden leaf with a supple, bright, fruity thin body and a easy light rose water, dried almond slices, and tinned lychee syrup finish with soft, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A nice floral escape for Riesling lovers.

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Traminette is an hybrid grape, a cross between a French-American hybrid Joannes Seyve and Gewurztraminer. The wine is produced in several states including Illinois, Virginia, Michigan and Maryland. The wines are medium-bodied with fragrant aromas of jasmine, orange blossom and lychee; they are made both dry or with a light touch of sweetness and are meant to be consumed young and fresh. There are also a few sparkling versions produced. Pair with scallops, Thai food or Asian cuisine.
