Since 1626 the Trimbach family has been dedicated to the production
of high quality Alsace wines from the traditional noble grape
varieties of Alsace. Currently, the 11th and 12th generations
of the Trimbach family oversee all aspects of the domain's operation,
with Bernard and his oldest son Pierre managing the vineyards and
winemaking, while Hubert and Bernard's younger son, Jean, travel the
world to promote the wines. Pierre Trimbach's winemaking is very professional
and results in bone dry and richly fruity wines. Although a boutique
winery in production, Trimbach is the most enjoyed brand of Alsace
wine in the United States.
and aging: The wine is vinified to complete dryness - no residual
sugar. Fermented in stainless steel vats with no oak aging. Bottling
is early to preserve freshness, and wines are then bottle aged before
leaving the winery.
Concentrated aromas and complexity in the nose. Its fragrance is
like a bouquet of flowers, with a touch of spiciness. It has a crisp
dry finish, and a good balance of acidity that keeps it fresh for
a number of years.
An ideal aperitif, it is also great with smoked fishes such as salmon.
Goes well with turkey,
Oriental, Indian and Cajun cuisine as well as strong cheeses.
