After a Quick change at home we where heeding for Alsace for some meetings with the top producers in the region, first out after a long drive that night ( believe me I was exhausted after the long flight from Johannesburg ) was a appointment with the lovely Anne of maison Trimbach in ribeauville one of the bigger wine towns in Alsace, what a wonderful treat she gave me when she start to pour the whole range of the Trimbach wines, believe me its hard to choose but an all time favourite is always the Frederic Emile cuvee made of Rieslings right outside the house on the slopes of Osterberg.
The Rieslings of the house Trimbach is extremely well balanced with racy acidity and great matures in the fruit, with a high content of minerality in the nose this is especially for the Clos St Hune Riesling that still after 5 years is very young and need many more years before it start to show of the real potential with maturity, this is for sure a world class Riesling that is hard to beat for any growers.
The Trimbach VT and SGN wines is something special with a massive fruit and complex aromas but all of them are perfectly balanced with sharp acidity and the sweetness, I’m so lucky to taste wines like this and have friends like the Trimbach family that can treat and spoil me like this.
Many Thanks once again dear Anne and bye the way you look amazing in your costume of flames J
