Cave de Turckheim
Grapes:
Riesling
Wine Description:

The classic variety of Alsace and much prized by the growers. Citrus fruit, lemons and limes with zesty acidity. A perfect aperitif or with a Thai curry.

Tasting Note:

A pure fruit driven nose, perfumed with cut limes and a hint of petrol. The wine has a perfumed honeyed palate and is intensely fruity with white peach flavours and mineral complexity. The finish is dry, refreshing and beautifully balanced, and incredibly open for a young Alsace Riesling.

Food Suggestion:

The ideal 'food' wine, the fine citrus characters make this Riesling the perfect partner for fish, seafood and shellfish. Good with poultry, particularly roast chicken and hearty summer salads.
