100% Pinot Gris, with grapes sourced from the Trimbach's own vineyards and about 100 growers with whom the family has long-term relationships. Not to be confused with Italy's Pinot Grigio, the Pinot Gris vine of Alsace is descended from the Pinot Beurot, originally from Burgundy.
Abundant ripe fruit on the nose and a creaminess on the palate are brought to life with subtle acidity. Softer and less challenging than other varieties, this wine is still totally dry.
A good choice for appetizers, fish and shellfish, poultry and other white meats and many lighter pasta, rice and Asian dishes.
Opened this wine to enjoy with lightly seasoned pork stir-fry. The subtle acidity worked beautifully with the food. The wine was so charming, however, that we had to finish it after dinner. Very understated but beautifully done.
