Tasting notes:

The Cave de Turkheim 

About the wine:

The Gewurztraminer grapes are sourced from selected prime vineyards lying on granite and gravel soils. Harvesting is done mainly by hand but sometimes machine, depending on the site.

The grapes undergo a relatively traditional vinification process overseen by winemaker Michel Lirhmann.

Vendange Tardive literally means 'late harvest'. Only produced in specific years, the grapes are allowed to sit on the vine later than normal. When conditions are right, this allows the 'noble rot' to develop, shriveling the grape before harvest, reducing the water content and increasing the grape juice concentration. This produces a richer, sweeter wine. 

About the producer:

Cave de Turkheim is situated in the village of Turkheim, just north of Colmar. Firmly established as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turkheim always pays utmost attention to the wine, combining experience, skill and patience with the latest technology and continued investment.

Michel Lihrmann has been the senior winemaker for over 25 years and firmly believes that varietals in Alsace should express their delicate characteristics and favours drier styles.
