Trimbach Riesling 2016, Alsace, France

This Riesling is a great classic of Alsace. At once delicate and vital, its intense fruit is given great length by a backbone of crisp acidity producing some of the world’s greatest and longest tasting wines. Alsatian Riesling are usually dry, in order to match with food. Maison Trimbach’s vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone. They benefit from the unique Alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain. The wine is produced with 100% Riesling by law, and is dry fermented at ‘Trimbach’. Riesling represents roughly 3500 hectares out of 15,000 total, and is a late-maturing grape.
