Straw color. Aromas and flavors of floral perfume with rose water, lychee, and peach and papaya syrup with a round, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish with notes of pear juice, honeysuckle, starfruit, and potpourri. The sweet and floral treat that you expect with some honey and chai tea spices.

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.
