Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Clos Ste. Hune 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

It's hard not to be swayed by reputations as lofty as that enjoyed by this wine, and even harder to assess it fairly so early on in its development. Quite a deep colour, the full, startling nose shows complex bready and mineral notes with some smokiness and perhaps a touch of spice. The palate is quite challenging: bone dry and with high acidity, it shows lime and mineral notes, with huge extract and concentration. Will probably be sensational in time, but quite hard work to drink now because of the high acidity and lack of balancing sugar.

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.
