Gewürztraminer Turckheim

Region: France / Alsace / Vins D'Alsace

The Gewurztraminer grape was always important in the village of Turckheim. Its position at the opening of the large Munster valley guarantees a warm and dry climate, especially during the ripening season, factors which are important for this grape that needs warmth and light to ripen properly. It is true that the greatest vineyards for Gewurztraminer are mostly located on richer marl/limestone soils, but the gravelly soils of Turckheim show generosity and pleasure in the wines. Ripeness is never an issue, but finding the right balance is the difficult part.

tasting note
