Trimbach Riesling, 2008

Trimbach Riesling Reserve, Alsace, France, 2008.

Riesling, 13% abv, natural cork closure; Ann et Vin, Newark, about £14.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – pale intensity lemon gold, paler rim, showing tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, medium (+) intensity, developing, with aromas of limy citrus, pine? quince? grapefruit, lemon, white peach, crisp red apple.

Palate – the wine is dry, with a lively high acidity, medium alcohol, medium (+) body, with medium intensity flavours of limy citrus and grapefruit, and a medium (+) length.

Quality and comment – a wine ready to drink, but which will keep owing to acidity and plentiful fruit. The gold tint indicates a few years age. 13% alcohol is higher than a German riesling, so it may be possible to differentiate between them using this factor.
