Vinification of the Riesling Sélection de Vieilles Vignes by F.E. Trimbach
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Riesling. Only first-class grape material was brought in for this wonderfully powerful varietal wine from F.E. Trimbach. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Alsace. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of limestone, clay and marl. Riesling Sélection de Vieilles Vignes is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Frenchman breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. When perfectly ripe, the grapes for Riesling Sélection de Vieilles Vignes are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks and large wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off. The aging in oak barrels is followed by a considerable bottle aging, which makes this white wine even more complex.
