Trimbach Riesling 2016

I was walking through my local LCBO and they had this wine on clearance, a whopping $7 off so I grabbed one. I’ve been on a bit of a journey of rediscovery on Rieslings, specifically from Alsace thanks to Greg! Now at $25 this is up there in what I would pay on a flyer, but at $18, well … Pale in color with a nice crisp dry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays mostly citrus noes, along with a slight hint of honey suckle, and I mean a hint. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice lively acidity. As it warmed up and especially the next day (ya there was some left over if you can imagine) the wine’s length improved. For $18, it’s a good wine, at $25 not so much. I would give it an -88. Super food friendly.

Wet stone and fresh lemon are faint but distinct on the nose. A pure lemon flavor streaks across the slender, taut palate, with a comet-like spray of freshness. This wine is dry and, if it weren’t for juicy glimpses of ripe lemon, would be almost austere. Score – 93. (Anne Krebiehl, MW, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 1, 2018)
