Trimbach Reserve Pinot Gris$48.00
Min. Quantity: 3
With viticultural origins going back to 1626 this family owned estate produces some of the finest wines not only of Alsace, but indeed the entire world of wine. Around the villages of Ribeauvillé and Hunawihr, the Trimbach family owns 57 hectares of vineyards including 1.67ha of Rosacker Grand cru (which produces the highly famed Clos Sainte Hune Riesling) as well as parcels of Geisberg and Osterberg (blended to make the equally renowned Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile). Geisberg and Osterberg are located on the hill rising up behind the ‘new’ family winery on the edge of Ribeauvillé. The family moved from their ‘old’ winery in Hunawihr in the 1890’s! Indeed, the label of Clos Sainte Hune depicts the view to the local church from the old winery in Hunawihr which is located in rue Saint Hune.
Grand cru sites make up 25% of the total production of the Trimbach family, whereas for Alsace the Grand cru sites represent 4% of all production.
Riesling is the main focus for Trimbach with 50% of production being Riesling (in Alsace Riesling makes up 22% of the total production).
In 1972 Trimbach eradicated all chemical use from the vineyards and winery and has been practicing sustainable farming, now organic for all estate vineyards.
