Winemaker Notes: Trimbach Gewurztraminer is a bright pale gold color. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, lychee and rose petals. The taste is rich, intense, luscious and well balanced with a dry, spicy finish.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast: The aromas are rather shy on the nose — there is just a mere floral whiff. The palate is dry and lets us see subtle varietal aromas: golden peach, a touch of honeysuckle spice, a hint of jasmine, aromatic orange zest. This is a restrained, streamlined and elegant varietal expression. Drink now through 2030. Esprit du Vin.
92 Points James Suckling: This is extremely rich and beautiful yet balanced and bright with spice, aniseed and dried orange. Full-bodied and flavorful. Delicious. All in balance. All the production of Trimbach’s gewurz went into this.
90 Points Wine Spectator: Linear and finely knit, this offers fresh acidity throughout and flavors of cantaloupe, orchard blossom, nectarine and pickled ginger, underscored by clean-cut minerality that defines the finish. Not a powerhouse, but very elegant. Drink now through 2021.

Winemaker Notes: This wine is all about texture. The meaty blueberry hint is sometimes like prosciutto or other dark charcuterie meats; the figgy base tones provide a solid base flavor, the cleansing natural acidity working with the tannins to draw the finish out to a delicious taper with a long aftertaste where those cherries evident in the bouquet re-emerge, sinuous and more-ish.
93 Points James Suckling: Dense and layered Shiraz with loads of ripe fruit, yet remains vivid and lively. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, savory finish.
