From the steep, south facing Sommerberg Grand Cru vineyards, this fantastic Riesling displays intense flavours of peach, lemon, honey and smoke. Ripe fruits and minerals form a rich, subtly smoky finish. Fantastic elegance and balance.
Pale yellow in colour, with bright green tinges that emphasize its characteristic freshness. The bouquet is elegant and racy, with delicate fruity aromas (lemon, citronella, grapefruit, peach, pear, stewed fruits...) and flowers (white flowers, limeblossom, white nettle...). It also offers aromas of anise, cumin, liquorice and fennel seeds. This dry wine displays great structure. It is characterized by intense freshness that can be appreciated from start to finish, whilst the mid-palate is defined by opulence and richness. The body, both racy and delicately fruity, makes this wine an ideal partner for Choucroute and pork-based dishes, it has a natural affinity with fish and shellfish, such as scallops, gracefully highlighting the salty, almost iodene flavours of the sea. It is also delicious with poultry, white meats and even goat's cheese.
This exceptional wine is a product of the terroir in the “Rosacker” vineyard, located in the village of Hunawihr. This parcel of land, which stretches over 1.67 hectares, has been in the Trimbach family for more than 200 years. The south, south-east facing vines are on average 50 years old and lie on a predominantly limestone subsoil. These factors give this Riesling a unique flavor of remarkable fruit concentration, enhanced by a refined hint of minerality on the finish.
Elegant and classic with grapefruit and white peach on the nose fully integrated into a food-friendly structure. The drivers are minerality and a crisp lemony acid backbone leading in to a long finish.
