This wine Paul hid from me, but I found it. I don’t know why he would hide a wine from me.
Whitecliff Vineyards & Winery’s 2010 Traminette.
This Traminette had an extremely lychee nose. In fact, lychee dominated the nose but it also had a crisp freshness to it with a hint of floral. The palate had nuisances of jasmine and tropical fruit notes with soft white pepper on the finish. The wine did not have a lot of acidity but was clean.
The more years that go by, the more I really like Traminette. As each winery crafts their wines in their own manner, Whitecliff has shown exceptional growth in winemaking with this varietal.
