External Reviews for Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Vendanges Tardives
Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business. The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential. Production Area Alsace, France Grape Varieties 100% Gewurztraminer Vinification Grapes are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness from Trimbach’s own vineyards, then selected for health and ripeness at a sorting table. A pneumatic press delivers the fresh must by gravity to stainless steel tanks in the winery below. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures over a period of weeks. Malolactic fermentation is inhibited to preserve the fresh natural fruit acidity of the wines, and bottling occurs some months after fermentation and aging. Trimbach wines are usually released after a minimum of 2 to 3 years bottle aging, to show the wines’ complexity and depth. Color Pale gold Bouquet Lychee, rose petals, cinnamon and cured meat. Taste Lovely depth of stone fruits with tropical fruit notes. Dry and well balanced with a hint of nuttiness to finish. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Gewurztraminer Reserve is an excellent aperitif and goes well with spicy foods and Asian cuisine.
This Riesling is a great classic of Alsace. At once delicate and vital, its intense fruit is given great length by a backcome of crisp acidity producing some of the world's greatest and longest tasting wines. Alsatian Riesling are usually dry, in order to match with food.
