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.
Cave de Turckheim Organic Pinot Noir is a textbook Pinot Noir of the bright, fresh and fruity kind.
After manual harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and fermented for one week in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Depending on the wines, the team utilise 1,2 or 3 pump-overs per day to maintain a delicate and fruity Pinot without astringent tannins. After a few days of post-fermentation maceration, they dig out the tank and blend free run and press juice. The wine is then aged on fine lees and undergoes malolactic fermentation during winter/spring. Produced from organically grown grapes but please note that the label does not say ‘organic’ in English. Instead, it uses the AB logo and certification and the French phrase: ‘vin issu de raisins de l’Agriculture Biologique’.
Cave de Turckheim Organic Pinot Noir wine is earthy with notes of baked red plums on the nose. An almost Burgundian savoury quality on the palate with characterful gamey and fruit richness. Balanced with a bright acidity on the finish. Pair with grilled salmon or tuna, free-range pork sausages, charcuterie, wild mushroom linguine.
