F E Trimbach Pinot Gris Reserve 2013

£17.39

 TASTING NOTE

One of the noblest of the Alsace grapes, Pinot Gris produces a full, heady, rich and lush wine in Trimbach’s hands. It is technically dry, but the style is so fruity and full, with such a long palate that the illusion of sweetness is maintained. Watch out too for a smokiness on the finish. Its great depth is balanced by a crisp acidity that gives structure and longevity. 

The Reserve quality is from parcel selections of old vines around Ribeauvillé (around 35 years old) which produces a more complex wine destined for a longer laying down. 
After harvesting, the grapes are brought directly to the winery where they are fermented in stainless steel and bottled early without malolactic fermentation.

The selection of very ripe grapes allows this Pinot Gris Réserve to match wonderfully with exotic, Asiatic and Japanese food. It really comes into its own with terrines, foie gras, smoked fish, fish in sauce (notably salmon) and white meats.
