Principal Grape

From the famed Trimbach, this Riesling reserve boasts classically restrained aromas of lime, fennel and a touch of honey fresh from the comb. On the palate there is quite a lot of power and force, channelled into a wine of lean texture but amazing length and minerality. Expect it to broaden in texture with age, and blossom with complex mineral, white peach, lemon aromas and flavours. Stunning.

    RIESLING - Germany is known for producing the world’s best Riesling but it has also thrived in the USA and Australia, and is now being produced across Eastern Europe And Austria. Light-bodied, fruity and with refreshing acidity, Riesling wines from cooler climates are infused with flavours of lime and green apple, whilst those from warmer regions tend towards notes of orange and nectarines.

  • Vineyard

    TRIMBACH is one of the great names of Alsace and a family business that can trace its origins back to 1626. 13 generations later, they remain true to their ancestors’ philosophy. This means very dry wines, strong on structure, longevity and fruit, with unparalleled elegance, balance and food-friendly versatility. From the freshness of Trimbach Pinot Blanc to the opulence of Clos Sainte Hune Riesling – one of the region’s greatest wines – Trimbach offers a pure reflection of the sun-warmed, limestone-dominated vineyards.

  • Region

    ALSACE, FRANCE is located in the country's north-east and is shaped by Franco-Germanic influences.  The key viticultural hubs are situated on the lower hillsides of the Vosges, on slopes with east and south-easterly aspects. Alsace is the only French wine region to grow significant quantities of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, while Pinot Gris, Sylvaner and Muscat are also regional specialities.  On the red wine front, Alsace Pinot Noirs are lovely, typically lighter-bodied and more rustic than those produced in the variety's Burgundy homeland.
