75cl * Vegan * 13.5% ABV * Alsace, France
The Cave de Turckheim co-operative represents a remarkable 240 growers that span the full breadth of the country. Gewurztraminer (seen without its umlaut in French) typifies the quintessential taste of Alsace.
A fantastic balance of ripeness, varietal character and finesse, with a gentle rose water and lychee nose, lemon aromas and a steely flinty character. The palate is fresh and restrained for an Alsatian Gewurztraminer, with notes of rose petal and faint hints of lemon. Super floral, yet perfectly balanced with honeyed, lemony acidity.
Try it with Thai food or strong cheeses, such as Munster. Drink to 2024.
