Trimbach Gewürztraminer 2017, Alsace, France
A remarkable grape with real personality; juicy lychee, rose water, cinnamon and lashings of spice pop out of the glass. However, don’t let that fool you - this is bone dry.
WHAT IT GOES WITH
Poultry, game, spicy dishes, fois gras, strong cheeses
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Operational since 1626, the Trimbach Estate is now under the thirteenth generation of family stewardship in the form of cousins Pierre and Jean, alongside their uncle Hubert and Pierre’s daughter Anne. This estate truly rose to prominence under the control of Frédéric-Emile Trimbach back in the late 19th Century, who brought their produce to international attention. To this day, the vineyard pays tribute to Frédéric-Emile's influence with the formal moniker of The F.E. Trimbach Estate. The business covers some 40 hectares across multiple sites in six villages, most notably including Ribeauvillé, Bergheim and and Hunawihr.
