Yellow straw color. Citrusy aromas and flavors of exotic limes, meyer lemons, and lemon meringue pie with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, crisp finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak.

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.
