Aromella was developed at the Cornell University’s Experiment Station
in Geneva, NY by crossing Traminette and Ravat 34. It was the 56th
grape released by Cornell. The vines are notable for their cold hardiness
and ability to produce grapes with similar chemistry to Reisling in a
short season. The wines take after Gewurztraminer in that they are intensely
aromatic with some floral muscat characteristics.
Our estate Aromella has lush aromas of pineapple, citrus peel, and
honeysuckle. The flavor is sweet and lush but backed up with balanced
acidity to keep it from being cloying. There is a tingle of muscat
character that lasts into the finish.
