Tasting notes: This Traminette has quickly become one of the cornerstone wines at Rosemont. Traminette is a hybrid of the Gewürztraminer grape from Germany but tends to grow a bit better in the hot and humid climate of Southern Virginia.
While many Traminettes that you’ll find are semi-sweet, this is made as a dry Traminette. This has a crisp finish and aromas of delicate white flowers, candied lemon peel, and honeydew. It is a lighter-bodied wine with crisp minerality.
The Domain- Rosemont was planted in 1982 as Virginia's southern most winery.
PAIRINGS-This is a great wine to pair with seafood, and especially with Virginia oysters! It also goes well with spicy foods such as Thai, sushi or a light summer salad.
