This Cave de Turckheim Réserve Gewurztraminer offers an aromatic and flavour-filled experience, with pronounced aromas of rose petals, peaches and lychees. On the palate, it is rich and ripe with roses, sweet lychee and clementine acidity to balance the luscious fruit. Perfectly paired with Thai dishes or strong cheeses.

About the Producer

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.

Substantial investment in the winery has enabled the team to vinify many parcels of grapes separately, offering Michel Lihrmann (senior winemaker for 25 years) the chance to highlight each wine's nuances in his signature dry, yet fruit forward, style.

Committed to producing the highest quality wines, growers are encouraged to keep yields low - for example, Cave de Turckheim voluntarily caps yields for its Grands Crus vineyards at 45hl/ha rather than the permitted 55hl/ha - and to pick the grapes by hand. This is part of a long term and innovative strategy of sustainability that includes developing the largest holdings of organic vineyards in Alsace, using natural alternatives to chemical treatments, and a green overview of all vineyard practices. 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.

Vineyard and Winery

Winemaking is traditional in style and is overseen by 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.

All time favourite

We tried all the Turkheim range and although they are all good, this has to be our all time favourite. It's perfect to go with Thai food and spicy food but equally quaffable on its own. Its a relatively sweet wine but not too sweet that it leaves a clagginess. Just give it a try.
