Cave de Turckheim Baron D’Alsace Riesling, AOP Alsace 2021


Cave de Turckheim

A fine, well rounded and beautifully balanced Riesling; typical of the Turckheim style.

Meet the producer

Widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turckheim lies at the mouth of the Munster Valley....



Winemaking is traditional in style and is overseen by Jean Michel Lihrmann. Grapes are sourced from selected prime vineyards lying on siliceous soil. Harvesting is by hand or machine, depending on the site. - pneumatic pressing, temperature controlled fermentation, no finings and light filtration before bottling - all to preserve fruit and aromatic qualities and elegance. His philosophy is to make wines with good acidity and fruit balance.

Tasting notes

A pure fruit driven nose, perfumed with cut limes and a hint of petrol. The wine has a perfumed honeyed palate and is intensely fruity with white peach flavours and mineral complexity. The 2019 is beginning to show some signs of evolution. The finish is dry, refreshing and beautifully balanced.

Food match

The ideal food wine, the fine citrus characters make this Riesling the perfect partner for fish, seafood and shellfish. Good with poultry, particularly roast chicken and hearty summer salads.
