About the Wine
It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have not had a Pinot Gris until you have drunk one from Alsace. And, trust us, you could do a lot worse than Trimbach. They are to Alsace what Obi-Wan is to Luke.
Pop culture references aside, this wine is stunning. It certainly isn't shy, but it does sneak up on you and, before you know it, you're in love with what's in the glass. Tropical fruits dominate, with pineapple and passion fruit pulp, but there is a bracing apple and citrus freshness too, resulting in great balance and drinkability. The weight and texture is remarkable, too. We can guarantee that you'll miss it when it's gone.
The origins of Trimbach go back as far as 1626, and it is still in family hands, 12 generations down the line. They are quite simply the icon winery of Alsace.
Based around their winery in Ribeauville they have around 57 hectares of vineyards including several famous Grand Cru sites, with Riesling being the obvious calling card among the other Alsatian aromatic whites.
Their masterpieces are the famous Rieslings, Clos Saint Hune and Cuvee Frederic Emile, which are among France's greatest white wines, though they are rarely seen.
