This year to celebrate 25 years of Handford Wines we will be bringing you a series of Tastings and events featuring some of James Handford MW's favourite producers, Terroir's & wines. We start off in fine style as we join James and taste some of Alsace's finest Rieslings from the historic Trimbach estate. They have the highest reputation for fine, dry and racy wines.The Jewel in Trimbach's crown is the Hunawihr Riesling Clos St Hune. This is a painfully rare wine from the tiny 1.3 hectare vineyard producing only around 7000 bottles per vintage. The wines are praised for there richness depth, complexity and longevity. Due to bureaucracy not allowing any solely owned vineyards to be labelled as Grand Cru the Trimbachs simply call it AOC Alsace. This will be a very rare chance to try 6 vintages of Clos St. Hune & some mature Trimbach Riesling.
