Description

Trimbach Gewürztraminer 2018

Trimbach Gewürztraminer is a unique fruity and spicy wine. Dry, precise and straightforward character. Finely balanced and aromatic nose of lychee, rose and ginger. The aromas follow through to the palate, which finishes dry and quietly exotic.

Ageing potential: 3–5 years.

100% Gewürztraminer. Maison Trimbach is located in the medieval city of Ribeauvillé and has vineyards spread across Alsace. The vines grow in marl, limestone and sandstone soils. The area has a semi-continental climate characterised by cold and dry winters and hot summers. There is not too much rain because it is protected by the Vosges mountains to the west.

After harvesting, the grapes are brought to the winery for fermentation in stainless steel. Early bottling without malolactic fermentation.
