Traminer is a name which may be used to refer to a series of grape varieties from Ancient Europe. From a historical standpoint, it was used to describe the Traminer German variant family, or as a synonym for a key member of such family, Gewurztraminer. The history of Traminer is long and complicated, with each of its traditional regions providing different names and local histories for the Traminer family.
From a parental standpoint, Traminer is one of the oldest European varieties and is even known to Romanians as Vitis aminera. Its leaves are small, round, with five lobes, the grapes are round to oval, with thick skins, firm body and low acidity, with a high sugar content and an intense spicy taste. It is a special variety for very ripe aromatic wines. Traminer is highly sensitive during blossoming – resulting in low production, but grapes with a high sugar content.
The Traminer family is quite prone to mutations, same as the Pinot family, to which it is closely related (of which, the most famous members are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir). Various forms of Traminer have occurred throughout Europe, and later in the vine regions of the New World and have given birth to some of the most famous grapes in the world; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc eventually becoming the descendants of early Traminer grape varieties. All this information provides a background for the impressive historical period and genetic diversity of Traminer.
The Traminer wines have a low acidic content, but are rich in extract and fragrances (roses, lemons, berries, raisins, dry fruit), have good durability and an excellent ageing potential.
