2013 Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1258316 92 points James Suckling

 The 2013 vintage was very good for gewurz in Alsace. This wine shows a stone, spice and dried peach character. Hints of licorice too. Full-bodied, dry and spicy. Classic style. Try this to understand what dry gewurz is.  (9/2015)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Powdery, creamy notes of rose, orange and mandarin oil unite in a concentrated, punchy palate that focuses on taste rather than aroma. This is rounded and rich with an immensely concentrated phenolic vein that lends structure and poise. The finish is lasting but demure. (AK)  (12/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Trimbach's classic 2013 Gewurztraminer offers a bright color and bright fruit aromas on the quite spicy, herbal and floral nose where lemon zest and blossoms are displayed. Very elegant, piquant and mineral in its mouthwatering salinity and fruitiness this is a perfectly dry, really ripe, fresh and very well balanced Gewurz with a stimulating grip in the finish. This is a perfect aperitif and pairs well with spicy and exotic dishes but also soft cheeses like Munster. (SR)  (10/2015)

Vinous

 Gold-tinged yellow. Pineapple, yellow peach and smoke on the nose. Citrussy and juicy on the palate, offering refined flavors of tropical fruits, spices and honey. Finishes with a slightly lean impression but very good length. (ID)  (2/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gewurztraminer

- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Alsace

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
