I’ve been reviewing ancient vines and vineyards recently. The theme continues with this bottling from Trimbach. The winery itself dates back 12 generations, and its vineyards are some of the best Grand Crus in Alsace. This bottling is primarily sourced...Yet another beauty from the land of beards and Birkenstocks. This one is every bit as exotic as the best of Alsace, but with the added weight that the New World provides. Good at any time of day…or morning.Easy to drink, tough to pronounce. But it’s worth learning how to for this exotically fruity, eminently enjoyable, pad thai-ready Gewurz.The great wines of Alsace often represent some of the best deals at the high-end of the fine-wine world. This minerally, floral, spice-scented steal is just as delicious on its own as it is with holiday-season foods. And at $17.99, it’s cheap enough to buy...Yes, you read it right: Gewurztraminer from Monterey. Sounds odd, but this wine’s combination of perfume, fruit, and structure will make you a believer in no time.
