Trimbach Riesling is perhaps this historic estate’s calling card. It is a classic Alsation style riesling – structured, elegant, fruity, balanced and long-lived. A perfect food wine.
Maison Trimbach (F. E. Trimbach) is, without question, one of the greatest names in wine-making in the French region of Alsace. Based in the town of Ribeauvillé, the Trimbach family has been involved in wine making over 13 generations. The business was founded by Jean Trimbach in 1626 in Riquewihr and has since moved twice, in the 1840s to Hunawihr and most recently to Ribeauvillé after World War One. Maison Trimbach has an enviable reputation for the quality of its entire range. Trimbach owns many vineyard located around Ribeauvillé (with predominantly limestone soils) but they also act as a negociant for local growers.
Trimbach does not use the Alsace Grand Cru designation for any of their wines (although most of their top wines come from Grand Cru vineyard sites). Trimbach’s top wine is the iconic Clos Ste Hune, a dry Riesling produced from a special plot in the Rosacker Grand Cru Vineyard. Trimbach wines are also listed in every single one of the 26 Three Michelin Star restaurants in France, and are present on the very best restaurant wine lists across the globe.
Maison Trimbach Riesling is 100% Riesling. After harvest the grapes are brought directly to the winery where they are fermented in stainless steel and bottled early without malolactic fermentation to retain the freshness in the wine.
This wine is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
