Trimbach, Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France, 2015

£19.95

One of the great noble wineries, not just of Alsace, but of France. Creating wine since 1626 and working with the classic regional varieties, they claim Gewurztraminer reaches perfection in Alsace...and we are inclined to agree. Brilliant with spicy dishes, dozens of desserts and soft cheeses.

Nose

Rose. Ginger. Lychee. Peach. Red apple. Exotic.

Palate

Pineapple. Honey. Minerality. Lovely acidity. Turkish delight.

 

What George says about this wine...

"A beautifully balanced Gewurz. Very aromatic with notes of lychee, rose and ginger. It sings to the nose. Dry, with characteristic subtlety, while simultaneously expressing exotic and spicy character.

Lovely with a roast chicken dinner, duck, goose or foie gras. And perfect with our Corned Beef Hash, to counter the saltiness and mouth coating quality of the runny egg yolk."
