This 5 Year Old Madeira starts life as fermenting must and is then fortified before undergoing its own very special maturation process. Made of predominantly Tinta Negra Mole Grapes, harvest begins from mid-August due to the warm southerly climate.
This wine has a pale lime-lemony colour. A distinctive mineral nose with hints of graphite and fresh lemons on the background. Juicy and elegant on the palate, showing fresh citrus flavours in a long and refreshing finish.
The viticultural origin of the Trimbach family dates back to 1626, when Jean Trimbach, was recognized as a citizen of Riquewihr. From then on, the Trimbach’s were renowned for their wine-growing. Maison Trimbach’s vineyards are all situated around Ribeauville (Ribeauville, Hunawihr, Bergheim, Rorschwihr, Riquewihr and Mittlewihr).
The copper-coloured liquid is immediately inviting, with tropical breezes of pineapple, melon and a feast of Caribbean sweets. Thick scents of banana fritters, plantain tarts, overripe mango and crème brûlée are lifted by fresh honeysuckle blossom and eucalyptus. Rounded and rich, with butter toffee, banana cream, and caramel to start.
The Chocolate Block is finally here. You asked for it so we got it! This new vintage has a beautiful deep red colour with aromas of dark black fruits with a hint of raspberry and chocolate. All this follows through on the palate. It`s dry, fruity with present but ripe tanins. Is it worth all the fuss? Hell yes!
