Fox Run Vineyards, Hedonia Traminette, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: Dessert wine from hybrid grapes can be surprisingly good and should not be overlooked, and this bottle from Fox Run proves the delicious point.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, pronounced-intensity nose of baked green apple, nectarine, green pear, and blossom.
On the palate the sweet, medium-plus-bodied wine has a creamy texture with super-ripe, pronounced-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a long finish.
While lacking mostly in midpalate complexity, the wine is brimming with flavor intensity and delivers dessert-wine sweetness to your glass.
Bottle Note: He-don-ia [h?-d?h-n?-?] noun. The ability to experience extreme pleasure. Fox Run’s perfumed, silky Traminette Port is the perfect drink to sip as dinner time approaches. Enjoy it straight from the fridge, or on the rocks with a twist of orange. Add a dash to your favorite sparkling wine for a taste experience that will dazzle your guests.
