Established in 1626, the Trimbach family has a wine-making history stretching back almost 400 years. It was not until the late 19th century, however, under the leadership of Frédéric-Emile Trimbach, that the business began to expand. Success came when he exhibited the wines at an international fair in Brussels in 1898, to much acclaim. Since the days of Frédéric-Emile the house of Trimbach has remained a family run business, based in Ribeauvillé. Today, Jean and Pierre Trimbach are in charge of the winery. The Trimbach family currently own vineyards scattered across three villages, with an emphasis on planting Riesling and Gewurztraminer, and the style associated with the house is one of dry structure and flavorsome with firm acidity where appropriate. Trimbach are not particularly known for their red wines, but they do produce a basic Pinot Noir as well as a Reserve Personelle, as well as basic cuvées of many of the typical Alsatian varieties, including Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner. Trimbach produce both late harvest wines of Alsace, the Selection de Grains Nobles and Vendanges Tardives wines, made from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris or Muscat. These make a departure from the classic Trimbach style as they naturally exhibit residual sugar and possibly also characteristics of noble rot, but they still have the necessary acidity to maintain balance and freshness.

56g sugar - and the nose confirms this. However, in the mouth the wine barely came off as anywhere near that sweet. A beautiful balance of acidity, minerality and the sugar leads to a wine that tasted like it had just half that sugar. Its age meant that much of the gewurtz character had tempered. There were still aromas of pot pourri, candied fruits and violets, but really at this stage this is a wine of balance. Very nice Served with warm apple strudel, cheddar, and calvados cream

This fragrent and full-bodied wine has very distinctive, spicy flavors that are an excellent compliment to Chinese and Cajun foods as well as strong cheeses.

On the dry side and focused, exhibiting nectarine, spice and grapefruit peel flavors on a medium-bodied profile, picking up white pepper accents on the finish. Drink now.
