DESSERT

Fox Run Vineyards Hedonia
Finger Lakes, New York

Cross-bred from a French-American hybrid and the German Gewürztraminer in 1965, the Traminette varietal survives well in cold climates such as that of the Finger Lakes. Hedonia, derived from the Greek word for pleasure, is a fortified dessert wine containing 20 percent alcohol and plenty of residual sugar. Offering orange zest, lychee, honey and elderflower on the nose, it reveals bright citrus and tropical fruit flavors in the mouth.
