The September 2018 Wine Of The Month, Traminette is a cross of the French American hybrid Joannes Seyve and the German Gewürztraminer and was originally developed at the University of Illinois.  It is considered by some to be one of the higher quality hybrid grapes.  Traminette was found to have excellent wine quality, combined with good productivity, partial resistance to several fungal diseases, and cold hardiness superior to its acclaimed parent, Gewürztraminer while retaining a similar character.

Traminette wines tend to be floral and spicy, and are made in both dry and off-dry styles.  It is an easy sipping wine that goes great with pears, apples, nuts, and cheeses.  Often paired with seafood and fish entrees as well as grilled pork tenderloins and turkey breasts.

Norton – August 2018 Wine Of The Month

August 2018 Wine Of The Month

Norton 3 Bottles for $33

Norton

Known as the State Grape of Missouri, Norton is an American native grape that was influential in saving the wine industry in the late 1800s through grafting of European Vitis Vinifera and native vine roots to cease the spread of phylloxera.  Also known by some as Cynthiana, the Norton/Cynthiana wines have gained recognition, not only in America but throughout Europe.

Norton is comprised of high acid, light tannins and lower balanced alcohol.  Younger vines produce concentrated flavors of blackberries, black cherries, chocolate, and vanilla while older vines may appear spicy with earthy aromas.  Aged in our American oak barrels, you may detect a bit of oak in the nose and palate.  Due to the high acidity, Norton is a good match for anything rich such as steaks, creamy sauces, cheeses, and barbecued meats.

Awards – 2014 Bronze Medal Indy International, 2013 Bronze Dixie Classic Fair, 2008 & 2009 Bronze Medal Winner Wines of the South, 2011 Silver Medal Winner Wines of the South.

Vintage Muscat – June 2018 Wine of the Month

Vintage Muscat

Wine of the Month – Vintage Muscat 3 bottles for $33

The Muscat family of grapes include over 200 grape varieties belonging to the Vitis vinifera species that have been used in wine production and as raisin and table grapes around the globe for many centuries. Their colors range from white to yellow, to pink to near black. Muscat grapes and wines almost always have a pronounced sweet floral aroma.

The breadth and number of varieties of muscat suggest that it is perhaps the oldest domesticated grape variety, and there are theories that most families within the Vitis vinifera grape variety are descended from the Muscat variety. Some familiar Muscat wines from around the globe are the sparkling Muscato Asti (Italy), Liqueur Muscat (France), fortified Moscatels (Spain) and the ever-popular Muscato (Americas).

Vintage Muscat is Century Farm’s version of the Muscato except that it is not overly sweet – just enough sweetness to balance with the acidity. Very fruity on the front end with plenty of citrus on the mid-palate. Very refreshing sipping wine.
