Cave de Turckheim Riesling Marnes et Calcaires 2017
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.
Marl and limestone soils are found in abundance on the slopes surrounding Turckheim and Wintzenheim. Giving wines with purity and longevity, brilliant expressions of Riesling and Pinots Blanc and Gris come from these soils. Cool fermentation and ample skin contact ensure an aromatic, expressive Riesling.
Aromatic, ripe citrus nose with racy, dry elegant fruit, this is a fine Riesling with the potential to age. Grilled fish, seafood especially scallops chicken and semi-soft cheeses.
