Trimbach 2000 Alsace Riesling ($16.99)
Very pale straw color with a brassy hue. Complex aromas blend white fruits with a hint of pine needles and a distant whiff of wool. Full-bodied and dry, full fruit and appealing "mineral" qualities are shaped by steely acidity. US Importer: Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, NYC. (May 1, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: Beautiful with an Alsatian fish dish (matelote de poissons) crafted to match, a light stew of trout and walleye pike with vegetables; it would do well with just about any fish, poultry or pork main course.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
