The 2008 Gewurztraminer has a gold color with a perfumed nose of lychee fruits and spices. The wine is rich, intense, luscious and the finish is dry and spicy.
It's textbook Gewurztraminer from Alsace, with a great balance that will age easily 5 years and more. This Gewurztraminer should be drunk with spicy foods from all around the world; from
Chinese cuisine to Indian curries, from sushies to fusion cuisine. Also drink with strong cheeses, like Munster cheese or Epoisse and Livarot, or blue cheeses like Roquefort, Fourme d'Ambert and
"Dry and tangy, with white peach, tangerine and spice notes. There's good snap from the firm acidity, with a modest, floral finish. Drink now. 13,000 cases made."
"Scents of pea tendril, celeriac, and rose petal on the nose of Trimbach's 2008 Gewurztraminer billow across a juicy, and for its cepage surprisingly buoyant and refreshing palate. A lick of salt adds to the stimulation of the finish. If only there were a dozen or more Alsace Gewurztraminer like this delightfully dry and distinctively delicious, a critical mass might be reached for driving home the message of this genre's potential versatility. Plan on enjoying this exemplar over the next 3-4 years."
