Gewurztraminer, Sables et Galets,Cave de Turckheim
Sables et Galets refers to the soil type of the Herrenweg vineyard site located in the Fetch Valley. The sand and pudding stones create a rich, spicy and full Gewurztraminer that ages very well.
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 grass.
