Similar to Gewürztraminer but cold hardy enough for my zone 5.

Very tasty
It isn't as vigorous a grower as concord seedless or reliance seedless and lags behind a few weeks in sprouting and flowering. Mine will take a full 4 years to reach 4 fully grown cordons. While concord seedless and reliance took 3 years.
The grape itself is very good with the spicy flavor of gewurztraminer. Didn't have enough for wine last year but I should have enough for a gallon or 3 this 3rd year.
