Goose Watch Traminette 2015: $11 Good+

The Goose Watch Traminette (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $11 [Good+] is a likable medium dry wine with interesting flavors.  A very good quaffer, this would be a fine bottle for a spring or summer picnic, with your chicken salad, cheese and fruit.  It is a very good buy at this price.

Medium lemon with a touch of spritz, the Goose Watch starts off very raw, tart, and metallic, but the nose improves greatly with air, showing sappy pear and white peach, lychee, spice, and nut oils.  Medium bodied, medium dry to medium sweet, with a good dose of tangy acidity, balance is good.  Moderately intense flavors of pear, lychee, orange-y citrus, peppery spice and nut oils are fresh and interesting, with a floral quality.  The finish is firm, tart, and full of peppery spice, with average length.  March 2016
