Featured Wine: Traminette

Back in March we discussed all the delicious wines available at Seven Springs Winery and started a series of Featured Wine Blogs!  Today we are going to learn all about Traminette.  Be sure to check out this white wine next time you are at our Lake of the Ozarks Winery.  We offer wine tastings daily, so you can try it before you buy it!

About Traminette

Traminette resulted from the cross of Joannes Seyve and Gewuerztraminer in 1965.  Fruit were first observed in 1971 at Cornell University and the original vine was propagated in 1974.  The vine was initially described as a vigorous and productive green grape with moderately loose clusters.  This late-to mid-season white wine grape has character similar to Gewuerztraminer.

Much more winter hardy than Gewuerztraminer, Traminette is suitable for cool climates and matures early to mid-October.  In warmer areas, increased bitterness and a high pH can become a problem. Bearing large clusters, the grape has good yields in the vineyard and delivers excellent fruit quality. It also has good disease resistence to powdery mildew, black rot and Botrytis.

Aging well, wine produced from this grape develops honey and apricot flavors in two to five years. Traminette has an elegant fruity floral aroma with a wonderful spicy flavor making it pair great with Asian, poultry and seafood dishes.

Now that you know a little more about Traminette Wine, stop by the best winery at the Lake of the Ozarks to try some! Enjoy a glass on our covered porch and patio area while admiring the beautiful view.  We hope to see you soon at Seven Springs Winery!
