Traminer

More common name for Savagnin Blanc (Gewürztraminer is the aromatic pink-berried version). Vines called variants of Traminer are planted throughout central Europe: Tramini in Hungary; Traminac in Slovenia; Drumin, Pinat Cervena, Princ or Liwora in what was Czechoslovakia; occasionally just Rusa in Romania and Mala Dinka in Bulgaria. It is also grown in Russia, Moldova and Ukraine where it is sometimes used to perfume Soviet sparkling wine. Some of these vines may be the more aromatic Gewürztraminer but less than perfect winemaking has tended to obscure the aroma. Australians have tended to use the term Traminer as shorthand for its close relative, the rather more cumbersome Gewürztraminer.
