Rosemont of Virginia 2019 Traminette
With this wine, winemaker Justin Rose has done something nearly impossible – made a traminette that I would gladly drink any night of the week.
It's floral on the nose, but not in a perfume-y, in-your-face way and those rose petal qualities are tempered by Meyer lemon and white grapefruit fruit aromas as well as notes of lychee and candied ginger.
Medium-light in body, the palate shows white grapefruit up front but with that sweet lemon and lychee character in the background. The floral flavors are well-integrated as is the fresh, citrusy acidity.
