(V) The famous Trimbach family have been making wines in Alsace for thirteen generations. They produce wines of unparalleled elegance, structure and balance which invariably feature on the wine lists of the very best restaurants across the globe. Alsacian Riesling is one of the wonders of the wine world and Trimbach produces probably the greatest wines of this varietal. The Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is their signature wine, bone dry and tingling with minerality. Definitely a keeper, the 2009 is already showing very well. This wine is delicious with fish, poultry, veal and sea scallops, though in Alsace it is traditionally served with the local goose, pork and meat dishes. A versatile and wonderful wine, intense and yet delicate and fresh.
A variety with plenty of nominations for the title of ‘greatest white grape variety in the world‘, Riesling has however, despite the wine trade‘s love affair with this grape, failed to capture the affection of the wine-drinking public outside its homeland in the same way as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Its inimitable, unique flavour is hard to describe and takes time to appreciate, however, few varieties have its capacity to reflect the land in which they‘re grown along with its own distinctive character, visible decades after bottling. Full of limey, green-apple fruit in its heartland of Germany and lean citrus notes in the Clare Valley in Australia, with the unmistakeable ‘kerosene‘ note in warmer climates, it is capable of greatness whether bone-dry, zestily off-dry or lusciously sweet.
