Cave de Turkheim Réserve Pinot Gris 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Cave de Turckheim is situated in the pretty village of Turckheim, just slightly north west of Colmar. Firmly established as one of the best co-operatives in the world Cave de Turckheim always pays the utmost respect for the wine, combining rigour, know-how and patience with the latest technology and a steady stream of investment. Michel Lihrmann has been their senior winemaker for over 25 years and strongly believes that varietals in Alsace should express their delicate characteristics and favours the dryer style of Alsace wines. Cave de Turckheim produce an extensive range of wines, from their value-for-money Cave Tradition varietal range to the wines from 3 different Grand Crus. Central to Cave de Turckheim’s success is their willingness to innovate; two years ago they launched the Réserve range to great acclaim, and 2006 sees the launch of the Terroir D’Alsace range (formerly Lieux-Dit), a label change for their signature Grand Cru range and the launch of the Turckheim Pinot Grigio - a dry style Pinot Gris.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. The Réserve range comes from predominately siliceous terrain. They are more powerful and robust. Their more assertive character reflects both the innate qualities of the grape variety and the growing conditions of the particular vintage. The 'Réserve Pinot Gris' Pale is golden yellow with floral and spice aromas, very textural with a long, slightly smoky finish. A fruity and complex nose (honey, compote), long, rich, a heady wine with a dry character. A perfect match with any fish, chicken or vegetable dish, particularly if you are cooking with Asian spices, ginger or chilli.
