Wine Review: This Traminette from the Finger Lakes was one of my favorite hybrid wines that I discovered at the Wine Bloggers conference. It opens with a fragrant and pleasant mild lychee bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty lychee and lime blend with hints of gentle yellow grapefruit. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine is a steal at $13 and would pair well with cashew chicken. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: 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.
