Turckheim Gewurztraminer 'Sables et Galets' (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 Gewurztraminer 'Sables et Galets' wine is a pretty expression of Alsatian Gewurztraminer - clean and perfectly poised. Sables et Galets Gewurztraminer shows lovely balance of ripeness, varietal purity and finesse. Fragrant rosewater and grapefruit aromas with a hint of sweet spice, pretty rich and pineappley, but with fine structure and complexity, spicy juicy fruit and acidity combine well to finish. Try with blue cheeses, exotic cuisine such as the lemongrass flavours of Thai food or fish/chicken curries featuring ginger, mustard seed etc. Chinese dishes involving crackling pork could work well, or even desserts if not too sweet, and foie gras.
