F E Trimbach Riesling 2013

£12.99

 TASTING NOTE

Elegant and classic with grapefruit and white peach on the nose fully integrated into a food-friendly structure. The drivers are minerality and a crisp lemony acid backbone leading in to a long finish.

After harvesting, the grapes are brought directly to the winery where the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and bottled early without malolactic fermentation.

The Trimbach Classic Riesling is dry, elegant and restrained, with a deliciously food-friendly bite. In Alsace this edge is what goes so well with, and cuts straight through, the local cuisine. Goose, sauerkraut and onion quiche are the watchwords here. Moving out of Alsace, it would be ideal with rich fish dishes, rice (legendary with kedgeree), pork and modern oriental food from sushi to light curries.

The Trimbach family has been involved in making wine since 1626 and has, over thirteen generations, built an enviable reputation for the quality of its entire range. From the Pinot Blanc through to the iconic Clos Sainte Hune Riesling, the wines are considered the benchmark for quality, consistency and style.
The essence of Trimbach, with the obvious exception of the luscious dessert wines, is the traditional dry style in which the wines are made. Many Alsace houses are today making rather clumsy wines with an element of sweetness that detracts from their food matching suitability; not so with Trimbach, whose wines are pure, vibrant and refreshing. It is no accident that the Trimbach wines are listed in every single one of the 26 Michelin Three Star restaurants in France, and are present on the very best restaurant wine lists across the globe.
