Silvery emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of sweet pea blossom, beeswax, tangerine, and lychee with a satiny, crisp, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, buoyant finish revealing shades of baked pear and cashew with no oak flavor. A solid off-dry Traminette that will have great appeal with moscato drinkers.

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.
