A fantastic balance of ripeness, varietal purity and finesse with a fragrant rose water and lychee nose, lemon aromas and a steely flinty character. The palate is sweeter and richer with pure rose and faint hints of lemon. Super floral, yet perfectly balanced with honeyed, lemon acidity. An elegant wine displaying the perfect harmony of earthy, floral and honey characters.

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. The winery is modern and produces up to 10 million bottles per year across an extensive range, from the excellent value Cave Tradition range up to individual Grand Cru varietals as well as Crémants d’Alsace and Vendange Tardive dessert wines.

Grapes are selected from vineyards with diverse soils - limestone, granite, gravel, marl and sandstone - which impart different characters and styles to the overall blend, and harvested by hand and machine, depending on site.

Produced 'traditionally' by winemaker Jean Michel Lihrmann - pneumatic pressing, temperature controlled fermentation, no finings and light filtration before bottling - all to preserve fruit and aromatic qualities and elegance. His philosophy is to make wines with good acidity and fruit balance.

Try with blue cheeses, exotic cuisine such as the lemongrass flavours of Thai food or fish/chicken curries featuring ginger, mustard seed etc. and fair spice. Or even desserts if not too sweet.
