Cave de Turckheim Grand Cru Brand Pinot Gris

£23.82
Widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turckheim lies at the mouth of the Munster Valley. Working closely with 180 partners, its vineyards span the full breadth of Alsatian terroir and grape varieties. Cave de Turckheim only produces wine from the grapes of its member growers, it is a récoltant not a négociant. Alongside some great organic wines, the extensive range runs from the excellent value Tradition wines right through to individual Grand Cru bottlings, plus fantastic Crémants d’Alsace and Vendange Tardive dessert wines, always in Turckheim’s signature dry, yet fruit forward, style.

A butter honey nose, with a dusting of exotic spice. The palate has notes of butterscotch and warm spice, with flavours of freshly baked ripe apricot tart. The nicely-weighted mid palate is balanced by mouthwatering lime acidity. Excellent value. Enjoy with foie gras; Indian, Chinese or Thai food (although not too much chilli!); smoked mackerel or full flavoured trout, salmon or sea bass dishes featuring soy sauce, ginger et al. Great with middle eastern vegetarian dishes, or even just a simply roasted chicken.
