Our Traminette has quickly become one of the cornerstone wines here at Rosemont. Traminette is a hybrid of the Gewürztraminer grape from Germany but tends to grow a bit better in our hot and humid climate of Southern Virginia.
While many Traminettes that you’ll find are semi-sweet, we like to keep our Traminette dry, giving it a crisp finish. Ours features aromas of delicate white flowers, candied lemon peel, and honeydew. It is a lighter-bodied wine with crisp minerality.
This is a great wine to pair with seafood, and we especially enjoy it with Virginia oysters! It also goes well with spicy foods such as Thai, sushi or a light summer salad.
