This is a fresh and soft, but dry style of wine. It is the least expensive in the range of Trimbach Rieslings, but it still shows a great, crisp character, some good intensity of flavor and, at this stage, youthful structure and tannins. Even this level of wine from Trimbach needs 3–4 years of aging. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates.
