"Pale straw with green tinges. Lemon, minerals and fresh herbs on the nose and palate. Juicy and vibrant, delivering zingy, lemony bite on the long finish. Boasts lively but harmonious acidity that really extends the fresh citrus and stony flavors on the back end. Knockout entry-level Riesling. A good thing too, as this is Trimbach’s “bread and butter” wine, the house’s most important one commercially (at a whopping 350,000 bottles a year). To be frank, anyone who can make 350,000 bottles of an entry-level wine this good has simply unbelievable talent. Chapeau!" (VM)

"Quite tart and firm. This has enough depth to carry well, and there's a great burst of candied-citrus character at the long finish. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Wet stone and fresh lemon are faint but distinct on the nose. A pure lemon flavor streaks across the slender, taut palate, with a comet-like spray of freshness. This wine is dry and, if it weren't for juicy glimpses of ripe lemon, would be almost austere." (WE)

Winery Notes:
“One of the world’s finest grape varieties!”

Riesling is the most emblematic of Alsace grape varieties.

Its delicate bouquet, the fine balance between its dry personality, its distinguished fruitiness and its natural vitality contribute to its exceptional richness.

As the house style dictates, it is vinified dry
