Trimbach Clos St Hune 2016
The Trimbach Clos St Hune has been stored in the same temperature controlled cabinet since its release date. Considered one of the greatest dry Rieslings in the world, it is sourced from a 1.67ha plot inside the Rosacker Grand Cru in Alsace, which the Trimbach family have owned for more than 200 years. The Trimbach Clos St Hune 2016 is a truly iconic wine. Only limited quality available to buy here online at Bottle & Glass Australia.
“Clos St Hune, the Alsace Riesling by which all others are judged.” Andrew Jefford.
"This is really phenomenal with such compact fruit and mineral, lemon and spice character. It’s full-bodied yet so refined and polished. It goes on for days. Glorious! Drink on release or hold.’"

"Luminous straw. Penetrating nuances of lime and guava join the lemon verbena, jasmine, mineral and white stone fruit aromas on the knockout, captivating nose. Then dense, complex and multilayered, offering profound flavors of fresh citrus fruit, sweet spices and talcum powder. Closes extremely long, clean and precise; this is a young white wine of utterly mesmerizing beauty. I find this to be one of the best young CSHs I have ever tasted; it is stylistically different but almost on the same quality level as the marvelous 2010 CSH. One sniff (never mind taste) and I was left almost speechless – and I’m not usually one who keeps his mouth shut when I recognize a truly great wine."
