Winemaker's Notes

Due to some grey rot, the bad botrytis, we have selectionned the grapes very carefully when they came to our press room, to avoid the mushroomy flavor which one can detect in numbers of 2006 Alsace wines produced by unskilled or undisciplined wine makers.

The result is a clean and well balanced 2006 Trimbach Gewurztraminer with all its classical fruit and flavors.

Its flavor reminds the lychee and some exotic fruits and it finished dry and spicy, perfectly in the Trimbach style.

Gewurztraminer should be drunk with spicy foods from all around the world; From Chinese cuisine to Indian curries, from sushies to fusion cuisine.It is the only wine able to stand up to spices. One should drink Gewurztraminer with strong cheeses as well, like Munster, Epoisse, or Livarot, as well as blue cheeses like Roquefort, Fourme d'Ambert and Stilton.

I have yet to have a bottle from a bad vintage of this wine. This wine is great for its price range and is a fine example of its type. Love it.

This is a great gewurtz, but I think I bought it in some Bay Area wine shops for closer to $15-16. Might have been an earlier vintage.
