From the bottle:
“Elegant and dry, Trimbach Riesling is a fine example of this true king of Alsace wines — delicious with seafood, fish, chicken or veal, and many other classic dishes.
The Alsace region in France is well known for producing stellar white wines with a heavy German influence. This due to the fact that the whole region has changed nationality several times throughout history, switching between Germany and France. Within Alsace, Riesling is the most produced white wine, and Trimbach is one of the oldest wineries in the area, dating all the way back to 1626.
The 2009 Trimbach Riesling begins with delicate and enticing floral, tropical fruit and apricot aromas. The wine tastes simply delicious and features a great mouthfeel, a lovely texture and excellent balance. It is crisp and clean but still rich and substantial. The primary flavors are tangy tropical fruit, lemon, lime and peach. It ends with a very long, dry finish. Those rich flavors just keep going and going. You’ll want to buy this gem by the case.
Overall Rating: 8.3
