Color - Beautiful straw color with green edges
Bouquet - Fine mineral fragrance with ginger, caraway seed, underripe pineapple and flowers
Taste - Flavors of white peach, quince and lemon on the palate with a lingering, clean and dry
James Suckling 91 points - A tangy and flavorful white with sliced lemon and minerally character plus attractive phenolic texture. Full body. Real Alsace riesling. Available in 2016.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - While this has a tight corset of freshness and structure, expressive notes of peach show their exuberance. The palate again reveals tautness, shot through with lemon purity while the peach delightfully plays around them.
The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style.
|Wine maker notes
|The specific vineyard plots for Trimbach Riesling are selected each year by Pierre and Jean Trimbach. The grapes are normally harvested in late October and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible.
|Served best with marinated, grilled, or sauced fish, and sushi. Delicious with traditional Alsace dishes like onion tarte, sauerkraut, and pork.
