Yellow straw color. Aromas of peach skin, fresh lychee, jasmine, rose petal, elderflower, and ginger with a supple, lively, petillant, fruity light body and an even, interesting, brisk fresh-made paper, pear, and lychee soda finish with no oak flavor. A zesty and slightly petillant, dry yet juicy Traminette.

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.
