Today’s “Quick Sip” is the Loudoun Valley Vineyard's 2009 Traminette. Loudoun Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by Bree Ann and Cameron Moore and is conveniently located off of Route 9 in Waterford, Virginia. The Traminette grape variety is a cross of Gewurztraminer and Joannes Seyve 23-416. The variety was developed in 1965 at the University of Illinois and later released by Cornell University’s Geneva Experiment Station in 1996. The flavor and aroma profile of Traminette strongly resembles that of its parent, Gewurztraminer. Let’s take a swirl, sniff, and sip!
Loudoun Valley Vineyards 2009 Traminette
In the glass, the Loudoun Valley Vineyard's 2009 Traminette displays a clear pale golden color. The swirl and sniff offers inviting floral (namely fragrant rose petals) aromas with lychee fruit and light citrus hints. The aromas extend to a lean, but balanced and crisp palate along with spicy overtones and light touches of sweet honey. This wine sips nicely on its own and will also work well with moderately spicy ethnic cuisine. The Loudoun Valley Vineyard's 2009 Traminette retails for (about) $15, has a reconstituted cork enclosure, and clocks in at an easy 12.2% ABV. Looking for something to do for Valentine's weekend?
