Trimbach Riesling 2020 750ml
James Suckling – 92 Points (2019)
Since 1626 with 12 generations of experience, Trimbach has become synonymous with great dry, Alsatian riesling. With aromas of ginger, baking spices, white flowers, and stone and tropical fruits, this benchmark white is multidimensional and pairs easily with a variety of fishes and light poultry.
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. It has a beautiful straw color with green edges with a fine mineral fragrance with ginger, caraway seed, underripe pineapple and flowers. The flavors of white peach, quince and lemon are followed with a lingering, clean and dry finish.
