So what  makes this one stand out for me?  This one leans on the dry to off-dry range of the sweetness scale, with minimal residual sugar.  That puts a check mark in the “win” column for me.  I tend to shy away from wines that are overly sweet.  On the flip side, even though my husband prefers sweeter wines from time to time, he absolutely enjoys this one as well.  So it ends up being a great compromise, as it’s an easy to drink wine.











What Does this Riesling Taste Like? (Tasting Notes)

Rieslings are characterized by their vibrant acidity, purity of fruit flavors, and elegant structure. Trimbach wines, such as this one, are often recognized for their ability to age gracefully, gaining complexity and depth over time. The winery’s commitment to crafting dry, terroir-driven Rieslings has earned them recognition as one of the top producers in Alsace.


Bursts of citrus, pear and white peach, along with subtle notes of green fruits.  Hints on floral notes, like white flowers or honeysuckle and even a hint of petrol


This Riesling is  more on the dry, to off-dry end of the spectrum.  It’s balanced and not too sweet.  You’ll also note citrus fruits, lemon, lime. and a hint of minerality.

Overall, this is a vibrant, flavorful, well balanced wine, with a refreshing and bright acidity – all while not being overly sweet (as I find some Rieslings to be). This is a great wine to have on hand during the warmer weather and impromptu patio sessions.

What Foods Pair Well With This Riesling?

Trimbach Riesling 2020 can actually pair well with a variety of foods.  Its vibrant acidity and versatility make it a great match for seafood dishes, such as shellfish, grilled fish, or sushi.  It can also complement white meats, like chicken or pork, and definitely pairs nicely with Asian cuisine or spicy dishes. Additionally, the wine’s acidity can help cut through rich and creamy sauces or accompany lighter vegetarian dishes.  And as always, I’m also happy to just drink this on its own, paired with some great company.

Where Does it Fall on the Riesling Sweetness Scale?

In terms of sweetness, Alsace Rieslings, including Trimbach, are generally produced in a dry style. They are known for their purity and focus on the expression of the grape varietal, rather than sweetness. On the Riesling Sweetness Scale, it falls in the dry to off-dry range, with minimal residual sugar.

Is Riesling Sweeter than Moscato?

Generally, some Rieslings can be less sweet than Moscato. 

Both Riesling and Moscato wines can be produced in a range of sweetness levels, from bone-dry to very sweet.

Riesling wines are known for their versatility, and they can be found in various styles, including dry, off-dry (slightly sweet), medium-sweet, and sweet. Germany and Alsace, in particular, produce Rieslings across the sweetness spectrum, while regions like Australia and the United States tend to lean towards producing drier Rieslings.

Moscato wines, on the other hand, are generally known for their sweetness. Moscato d’Asti from Italy and Muscat/Moscatel wines from other regions are often produced in a semi-sweet to sweet style, with a noticeable level of residual sugar. These wines are known for their fruity and floral aromas, low alcohol content, and sweet flavor profiles.
