2013 Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace
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.
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)
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)
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)
