6 bottle case Turckheim Grand Cru Brand Gewurztraminer Alsace wine, VAT and Duty are included in the price.

Turckheim Grand Cru Brand Gewurztraminer. A deliciously exotic Alsace wine. This selected vineyard 'Grand Cru' Gewurztraminer shows a lovely balance of ripeness, varietal purity and finesse (i.e. not overblown and flabby like some wine). Golden yellow in colour, it has powerfully fragrant rose-petal/water, lychee and apricot aromas with a hint of sweet spice; rich and pineapple y but with fine structure and complexity, spicy juicy fruit and acidity combine well on the medium-dry finish.
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

The One-Liner
Stunning aromatic wine from one of the best vineyard sites in Alsace.
Tasting Note
Classic yet delicate fragrance of rose-petal, lychee and warm spice with rich,
powerful complex fruit yet a fine structure and balance which ensures this deliciously
exotic white retains an elegant style and finish.
