2011 Gewurztraminer Reserve, Trimbach
Alsace / France
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Excellent as an aperitif, this lush reserve is particularly good with highly seasoned food, notably from Asia and the Orient. It is ideal with strong cheeses especially Munster.
With its years of bottle age, this wine has taken on a medium gold colour in the glass and the nose shows complex development as the primary lychee fruit segues into beeswax and camomile. In the palate there are lush lemons and mouthfilling grapiness, tropical fruit and a hint of smoke.
