2014 Trimbach Pinot Gris Reserve Alsace
Winemaker Notes: Bright, pale gold with aromas of juicy peaches and ripe pear. Fullbodied with ripe smokey tropical fruit flavors and a long nutty finish. Perfect as an aperitif or with fish, shellfish, poultry and lighter pastas.
WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
Sourced from the Trimbach’s family’s own vineyards and from growers with whom the family has long-term relationships. The wine is fermented to complete dryness in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great ageing potential.
Wine Enthusiast - "A lifted, ethereal note of bitter almond suggests the beginnings of evolution. The palate, on the other hand, still seems closed but displays a streamlined concentrated core of flawless dryness and precise bundled freshness. This is taut, precise and sure to develop. The finish is lasting, refreshing and clean. Drink now through 2030. "
