Traminette

Traminette Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Silver Decoy Traminette emphasizes the fruit-forward qualities of the exciting new variety. Traminette's German lineage to Gewurztraminer is evident with floral apricot aromas and subtle spices. Our fresh off-dry style is perfect as an aperitif and also can be enjoyed with poultry or Asian fare. Winner - 2005 NJ Wine Competition - Bronze Medal

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 Still grown in France and in California but almost everywhere has been replaced by its much more intense and spicy offspring clone.
