Australian Traminer-Riesling (Selection International)

The hot Australian climate produces Riesling grapes with a much thicker skin than those grown in Germany producing flavors of citrus fruit and notes of lemon marmalade. It's lively golden hue reveals a combination of floral notes and apple crispness with perfumed headiness of lychee, rose petals, and hints of passion fruit. The long finish and medium body make this a great wine for spring.

Origin Australia

Changing Palates Will Love It! Review by The Dancing Chef

(Posted on 1/13/15)

Our family makes wine each January. Last year we made this Australian Traminer-Riesling instead of a regular Riesling. Our daughters were beginning wine drinkers, but noticed their palates were changing in the form of not wanting such a sweet wine. We could tell this was going to taste great even from the beginning. At the 3-month mark, it was almost ready, but we let it go to 6-months as recommended. It gets better the longer you wait. You get about 28 bottles so they split them, gave a few bottles as gifts and my husband and I kept a couple. Well, the wine didn't last long. This year we asked what they wanted to make, and they both agreed this was the one. So...we'll be ordering two boxes to make this year....LOL.

I really like this wine. I like lychee and I am able to faintly taste then in this wine. If you have ever had fresh lychee, you know the flavor I am referring to. Great kit.

Made this wine last year and it was very good. Just the other day I saw one last bottle of it on my shelf in the wine cellar, so I opened it. Oh my gosh!! It was excellent. It was now over a year old. Let me tell you it ages well, so sweet and mild. It was so fine tasting that I immediately ordered more. Will have to try and let it sit till next summer. It will be worth it.

Bottled this in late 2011 and I added a 1/4 cup light roasted oak chips to the primary. Only have 2 bottles left and it only gets better with age. My favorite white so far, starting my next batch.

Love the tropical fruit in this wine Review by Peggy

I've used this kit twice to make payments, splitting the batch both times to make Traminer Riesling Pyment and Cherry Traminer Riesling Pyment. The tropical fruit flavors from this wine base really come through and give the meads something special in the nose and palate. Lovely.
