Turckheim Riesling 'Marnes et Calcaires' (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turckheim is situated to the north west of Colmar in Alsace. Michel Lihrmann has been the senior winemaker for over 25 years and his style of dryer wines has been a huge hit, expressing the wonderful breadth of the Alsatian terroir and grape varieties while pushing pure fruit flavours to the fore.
Turckheim Riesling 'Marnes et Calcaires' wine is an exemplary, delicate Alsatian Riesling. The chalk and clay soils of the slopes around Turckheim help to produce wines of considerable longevity, complexity and distinction. Cool fermentation and ample skin contact ensures an aromatic, expressive Riesling. Bottle age has lent an alluringly complex baked citrus nose. Racy, dry and elegant, this is a fine Riesling with potential to age. Match with fish, scallops and white meats.
