On the nose I found hints of floral with a little rose aroma and lychee. When I describe the Traminette it seems to usually have this lychee nose and taste. Did you ever wonder what a lychee is?Lychee is a tropical fruit. It is primarily found in China, India, Madagascar, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, southern Taiwan, nothern vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Southern Africa. It is a fragranced fruit with a sweet taste. The fragrance comes from the organic compound Rose Oxide (twocisroseoxide.) Rose Oxide contributes to the flavor of lychee that is found in Traminette and Gewurztraminer.
