My Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. You know what they say, “bring the heat, bring the sweet!” On the nose; mellowed petroleum, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, stone fruit, hint of slivered almonds, soft minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers. The body is full, thick and rich. It’s acidity rounded, softer and really beautiful. Stone fruits; apricots, peaches & yellow nectarines. Ripe green melon, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, hint of slivered almonds, far less petroleum on the palate than the nose, soft chalky minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers. Delicious on its own and a good pair with Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Coravined glass for pairing. Interesting this is $143 on Delectable. I didn’t pay anything close to that upon release. $55+ currently on Wine Searcher. I paid around $27 at release. Photos of, Trimbach, my Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps, Trimbach family and one of their Vineyards on a day with an amazing sunset.

Excellent classic aromas and a solid spine of acidity: dried apricot petrol bergamot excellent and endless food pairing opportunities

Super mineral and petrol with laser beam acidity- nice with Terra salmon curry. I wish I could afford to drink this more often...
