2015 Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1353614 92 points James Suckling

 Lots of concrete and spices featuring cloves and dried apples. A dry, full-bodied palate with polished texture. Lovely fruit, too. Drink now.  (12/2016)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 A very shy nose just releases the most teasing hint of peach. The palate is utterly restrained: peach flavors are dry and brightened by lemon and have a wonderful lightness of touch. The finish is dry, clean and long. A very refreshing and clean-cut take on Gewurztraminer.  (8/2017)

90 points Vinous

 Good full yellow. The strongly floral nose also hints at smoky bacon and exotic fruits. Then almost austere and straightforward; a very strong saline bent frames the delicate tropical fruit and honeyed flavors. Tactile but also very pure on the long finish. Lovely, lighter-styled Gewürz.(ID)  (5/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Gewurztraminer is super clear, fresh, spicy, ripe and pure on the nose. Clear, fresh and elegant on the palate, this is a rather light and well-structured, but neither intense nor complex, Gewurz. Easy to drink with Asian food.(SR)  (6/2017)

Wine Spectator

 A spicy thread of white pepper and ground ginger unravels through this minerally white. It's light- to medium-bodied and creamy, with hints of baked peach and grapefruit sorbet. Clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2020.  (12/2017)

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.
