Aging nicely. Enjoyed braising with and drinking this lovely balanced riesling. The years have taken the edge off of its bracing acidity and added a hint of honeyed character.

An unbelievably good value entry level riesling - Great, stony mineral touch with underripe apricot and some toasted nuttiness, interesting but restrained. In the mouth there is a great snap of salty minerality, a stony grip on the back end with snappy lemon & lime sherbet.

Find me a better entry-level competitor (there isn’t one)

Perhaps the benchmark Riesling globally; how is it tasting these days? Pale yellow in color, excellent clarity. Sulfite and barnyard initially in nose. Lemon, melon and peach flavors, some skin astringency in finish. Mineral aftertaste. After an hour, malolactic flavor and Riesling character emerge. Good crispness, I prefer this as an aperitif, but should pair well with food.

It would be unwise to underestimate the quality and complexity of Trimbach’s entry level wines, particularly the Riesling. Racy salt-preserved lemon, Granny Smith apple, orchard blossoms, ginger and shimmering minerality are what define this wine in addition to its petrol-forward personality. What it might lack in textural richness it more than compensates for with lovely freshness and kinetic energy on the palate. Outstanding vintage. (Kittens not included)

Consistently one of the best entry-level Riesling from the region.

Ripe yellow apple, apricot, lemon, limestone, petrol, yellow flowers, touch of almond, wool, ginger. Sounds like a lot but there are so many layers! 💯

Lemon and mineral nose. Dry, medium acidity long finish. #trimbach #riesling
