Our Traminette is back in fine form after the 2014 and 2015 vintages were wiped out by the extreme winter cold in those two years. A child of Gewürztraminer, this lovely semi-dry white exudes Gewürz-like style and character. The soft aroma of rose petals nicely complements the taste of spiced pear in this medium-bodied wine. A light fining captures lush aromas and flavors in every bottle.
Our 2016 vintage of this exceptional wine was selected the Best White Wine at the 2018 Pennsylvania Wine Excellence Top 10 PA Wines competition and we think the 2019 is even better. Chill well and serve with light seafood dishes or spicy ethnic foods.
