Trimbach Reserve Pinot Gris
The Trimbach Reserve Pinot Gris is grown and made in Alsace, one of the worlds leading regions for Pinot Gris. The wine is full bodied and dry, as well as having a pronounced flavour intensity and displaying fresh and dried fruit aromas and flavours. There is a hint of smokiness and a hint of honey, both ideal traits for Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pair with: terrines, fish in sauce, smoked or raw, white meats, mushrooms, well-seasoned and aromatic dishes, Asian cuisine…even spicy food.
With viticultural origins going back to 1626 this family owned estate produces some of the finest wines not only of Alsace, but indeed the entire world of wine. Around the villages of Ribeauvillé and Hunawihr, the Trimbach family owns 57 hectares of vineyards including 1.67ha of Rosacker Grand cru (which produces the highly famed Clos Sainte Hune Riesling) as well as parcels of Geisberg and Osterberg (blended to make the equally renowned Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile). Geisberg and Osterberg are located on the hill rising up behind the ‘new’ family winery on the edge of Ribeauvillé. The family moved from their ‘old’ winery in Hunawihr in the 1890’s! Indeed, the label of Clos Sainte Hune depicts the view to the local church from the old winery in Hunawihr which is located in rue Saint Hune.
