Classic yet restrained Gewurztraminer.
Widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turckheim lies at the mouth of the Munster Valley. Working closely with 180 partners, its vineyards span the full breadth of Alsatian terroir and grape varieties. Cave de Turckheim only produces wine from the grapes of its member growers, it is a récoltant not a négociant.
Winemaking is traditional in style and is overseen by Jean Michel Lihrmann – pneumatic pressing, temperature controlled fermentation, no finings and light filtration before bottling – all to preserve fruit and aromatic qualities and elegance. His philosophy is to make wines with good acidity and fruit balance.
With gentle aromas of rose petals and clementines, the restrained palate is lighty prefumed (as wild flower honey) and long.
This wine is perfect with aromatic spice based dishes (particularly Thai). It can also be served with a strong cheese such as Munster or Stliton.
