Grand Cru Brand Gewurztraminer Cave de Turckheim

Grand Cru Brand Gewurztraminer Cave de Turckheim

Turckheim, Alsace, France
Cave de Turckheim
Wine Description:

From the deep granite soil of the Grand Cru Brand site high above Turckheim. An exotic, ripe, scented nose and a rich palate of peach and apricot with a honeyed nose and balancing acidity.

Tasting Note:

Intense Turkish Delight nose of rose-petal, lychee and warm spice. Rich, powerful and complex fruit yet a fine structure and balance which ensures this deliciously exotic white retains an elegant style and finish.

Food Suggestion:

Of course match with spicy Asian cuisine but also try with a rich paté, a strong blue cheese (e.g. Gorgonzola piccante) and, perhaps surprisingly, with a tart tatin.
