Turckheim Gewürztraminer V. V. 2016
A pronounced, floral bouquet of honeysuckle, melon and lychee draws you in. The aromas are well balanced with grapefruit-like acidity creating a light and elegant medium-sweet wine.
What we say
Rich, generous, crystallised lemon marmalade overflowing with aromas of hyacinth, rose and lychee. The palate is clean, lifted by hints of lime and minerally character. Pair with asian noodles, desserts, strong cheeses, or exotic cuisine.
What they say
The vines are more than 35 years old which give this wine a specific concentration and richness. This Gewurtztraminer is very expressive and rich with aromas of roses and ripe fruits and a balanced and elegant body. An excellent apéritif, it perfectly accompanies strong cheeses such as Roquefort and Munster), exotic and spicy cuisines, as well as slightly sweet desserts.
