(the only Trimbach gewurztraminer from this vintage) Medium gold-tinged yellow. Varietally pure and expressive aromas of spice and lichee. Spicy and dry, with decent density and no shortage of flavor intensity. Finishes with good spicy persistence. I preferred this for its flavor intensity to the Pinot Gris Reserve, which is an admirable effort for the year but finishes with a slightly dry edge.
