Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée Frédéric Emile 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Gewurztraminer is a very aromatic white wine grape that is commonly found in the Alsace region of France (even though there are some new world producers working with it now, as well). Look for notes of rose petals, spice, and lychee fruit on the nose, and a medium to full body. Trimbach is known as one of the best producers in the Alsace region - and this 2011 Gewurztraminer with its exotic fruit and rich texture is a great example of why.

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.

The Trimbach Gewurztraminer is gold in color with aperfumed nose of lychee fruits and spices. The wine is rich, intense, luscious and the finish is dry and spicy.
