Rosemount Tramier Riesling

Wine: Rosemount Tramier  Riesling
Store: Costco
Price : $6.99 (I think)

"Traminer Riesling is a delicious blend of two of the world’s most expressive and flavoursome
grape varieties. Traminer–also known as Gewurztraminer–has a spicy, tropical fruit
aroma reminiscent of lychees and exotic scent, with a generous, soft palate. The Riesling
component adds elegance to the finish, with lifted, floral flavours and a fine acidity which
balances the wine to perfection."

I bought this wine on a whim while purchasing some goods for a party. I must say this is one of the best Riesling's I have ever tasted. It has a fuller body than some other Rieslings, with a crisp, subtly sweet finish. It goes down smooth, and is a great summer wine, whether with a meal or to enjoy on it's own.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
