Traminette Wine Details
Price: $16.99 per bottle

Description: Vinified semi-dry, our 2006 Traminette is crisp, light and approachable. Whole cluster pressed for maximum varietal character, with a bouqet of floral & spicy notes, and a palate of apricot, honey and grapefruit.

Varietal Definition
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 Still grown in France and in California but almost everywhere has been replaced by its much more intense and spicy offspring clone.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' 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'.
