Our wine tonight to pair with my Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Just enough sweetness (not overpowering at all) that handled the mid spiciness of our wraps.
The nose reveals, ripe; golden & some green apple, pear, more pineapple juice than flesh, white citrus, blend, orange/tangerine & stone fruit. Honeysuckle, beeswax, ginger notes, white, slightly sweet, spice, somewhat elegant minerals, wet river stones, saline, gun powder/flintiness, not quite petrol with yellow flowers/lilies & some mixed greens.
The palate is full, round, thick and slightly gluey-waxy. Delicious & easy to sip. Ripe; golden & some green apple, pear, more pineapple juice than flesh, white citrus blend, orange/tangerine, green melon, white & yellow peach and apricots. Honeysuckle, beeswax, ginger notes, white, slightly sweet, spice, somewhat elegant minerals, wet river stones, saline, gun powder/flintiness, not quite petrol notes with yellow flowers/lilies & some mixed greens. If you like cool climate acidity, you’ll love this Pinot Blanc. It’s like a rushing, clean, mountain stream. The finish is; ripe, rich, well balanced and refreshingly delicious.
Quite a nice wine & QPR.
Photos of; Anne & Jean Trimbach, their ancient large oak vats lined with tartaric crystals and Trimbach. The whole area is a blend of German & French architecture.
Additional notes; Alsace changed hands twice (French & Germany) over two World Wars. Alsace has also had two rebuild their vineyards twice after German tanks crushed their vineyards during both World Wars. Further ransacked & drank their wine cellars. If you know anything about how long it takes to replant and mature vines to get usable fruit (7 years minimum), it is a tremendous financial burden, if not disaster for wine producers. — 19 days ago
