From the bottle:
“Since 1626, Maison F.E. Trimbach has crafted wines of precision and focus from the classic terroirs of Alsace. Trimbach Pinot Blanc has lovely soft, subtle fruit aromas and friendly flavors. This dry wine is perfect with seafood, salads, fish, any light meal or on its own.
Today’s wine has a fabulous pedigree as far as we’re concerned. First off, it comes from Alsace — a region that can even make Pinot Grigio tastes fabulous. Second, it comes from a variety that we don’t think gets its due, Pinot Blanc. And third it comes from one of our favorite producers in Alsace, Trimbach, who also make a fantastic Riesling that is a perennial top 5 selection on our list of Top 10 White Wines Under $20.
The 2011 Trimbach Pinot Blanc begins with lovely white peach and floral aromas as well as a touch of spice. Tasting the wine reveals delicious apple, pear and apricot flavors along with wonderful acidity and a smooth and lively texture. Crisp, balanced and very quaffable this is a fantastic summer wine that will pair excellently with lots of warm weather foods like chicken, fish, salads and more. It ends dry and long with a little stone minerality at the very end. A summertime superstar!
