January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind. Delicious and shocked it was gewürztraminer. It was sweet/botrytis like, but not overly so. I didn’t pick up lychee or honeyed pear that I usually do with this grape. Touch of petrol. My guess was Alsace Pinot Gris in vindage tardives style. At least I got the country and region.

Had the 2008, I think that it needs a few more years. I had the 2004 a a year back and it was amazing. Love Trimbach!

2008 vintage. One of the great Gewürztraminer cuvees in Alsace I have read. Apparently should be aged ten or more years so I have gone a little early at 8 years. Mid gold in colour. Nose was Lychees with a hint of cinnamon. Lovely rich palate of lychees with a slight citric bitterness finishing dry at 14% Alc. Mouth filling and bottom line - delicious.
