Traminette

Traminette Wine Details
Price: $13.00 per bottle

Description: Made from a new premium wine grape developed by Cornell University, our Traminette is very dry, with a distinctive spicy finish that is reminiscent of Gewurztraminer, (which is one of Traminette's parent varieties). The crisp fruit flavors and spicy finish make this wine a great accompaniment to many oriental dishes.

Varietal Definition
Traminer:
Parent grape of the popular Gewurztraminer clone. Still grown in France and in California but almost everywhere has been replaced by its much more intense and spicy offspring clone.
Traminette:
'Traminette' is a late mid-season white wine grape which produces wine with pronounced varietal character likened to one of its parents, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'. 'Traminette' is distinguished by its superior wine quality combined with good productivity, partial resistance to several fungal diseases, and cold hardiness superior to its acclaimed parent, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'.
