A 2010 Jefferson Cup award winner and voted one of the top 20 wines in the country in the white non-vinifera white wine category, the Somerset Ridge Traminette Oktoberfest is a prime example of the ever-changing wine world. Made from the Traminette grape, a Gewürztraminer hybrid, the grape has found a permanent home in the Kansas soils of Somerset Ridge. A late mid-season grape, Traminette is more hardier and disease resistant than it’s acclaimed parent.
The nose offers citrus, floral and stone fruit (think peach, apricot and pear). Light bodied, good acidity and a refreshing mineral finish help make the Oktoberfest the perfect accompaniment to Asian foods or spicy dishes.
