Cave de Turckheim Edelzwicker Vin d’Alsace NV
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.
Pneumatic pressing, temperature-controlled fermentation, no finings and minimal filtration all help to preserve the pure varietal character of the wine. Here classic varieties Pinot Blanc and Riesling have been blended with the less well-known Sylvaner grape which brings delicacy and satisfying acidity.
A delicious and complete white blend with delicate green fruit flavours, plenty of fleshy texture and a light, refreshing and savoury finish. Brilliant with delicate and aromatic Asian salads and fish dishes and a match made in heaven with Tarte Flambée or Flammkuchen!
