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. The specific vineyard plots for Trimbach Riesling are selected each year by Pierre and Jean Trimbach. The grapes are normally harvested in late October and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible.
The Trimbach Classic Riesling is dry, elegant and restrained, with a deliciously food-friendly bite. In Alsace this edge is what goes so well with, and cuts straight through, the local cuisine. Goose, sauerkraut and onion quiche are the watchwords here. Moving out of Alsace, it would be ideal with rich fish dishes, rice (legendary with kedgeree), pork and modern oriental food from sushi to light curries.
ABV = 12.5%.
