Trimbach Pinot Blanc
France – 2018
Tasting Note: Immensely elegant Pinot Blanc from a famous Alsace House: lots of lemon, a spine of pure minerals, a touch of cream.
Food Matching: Pinot Blanc is a versatile wine, suitable for any occasion. It is delicious on its own, as an aperitif, or with a light meal. Ideal for banquets and similar occasions.
Vineyard: Strictly speaking, Alsace Pinot Blanc is a blend of two varieties: Auxerrois brings juicy ripe fruit and body, while Pinot Blanc proper is drier and more acidic, adding freshness and backbone to the blend.
Vinification: After harvesting, the grapes are brought directly to the winery where the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and bottled early without malolactic fermentation.
