Reviews of purchase Cave de Turckheim, Riesling Grand Cru "Hengst", Alsace AOC, 2012
The wine is straw-yellow in color.
The elegant taste of wine demonstrates an intense fruit kernel, which is complicated by a mineral frame. The aftertaste is refreshing, balanced and unusually open.
The pure, stylish and developed aroma of wine is woven from shades of a linden, a peach, a lemon, a grapefruit which are underlined by hints of minerals and easy balsamic nuances.
The wine is served to salads, poultry, fish, sauerkraut, snacks, fresh seafood, such as crabs, light pork dishes, especially with cream sauce.
Cave de Turckheim, Riesling Reserve, Alsace AOC - elegant wine with incredibly bright fruity tones and excellent balance. The Riesling variety is at its best. Grapes are selected from vineyards with sandy and gravel soils, where harvest is collected both manually and mechanically. Vinification is traditional, including pneumatic pressing, controlled fermentation, sedimentation on sediment. The filtration is carried out before bottling. The potential of wine is 3-5 years.
Initially, the philosophy of the cooperative Cave de Turckheim was based on passion, respect for the vine, heritage preservation, dynamic development and innovation. It was established in 1955 to improve the reputation of Alsace wines. Currently, 216 farms are engaged in growing vines to the northwest of Colmar on the sunny slopes of Türkheim, paying special attention to the quality of grapes.
Michel Lichrmann, who has been the senior winemaker of Cave de Turckheim for more than 25 years, is firmly convinced that the quality of the wine is already laid in the berries themselves, so the transition to sustainable farming practices, biodiversity conservation and environmental protection was logical. The cooperative offers a wide range of wines in different styles, which is promoted by more than 20 different types of soil in the region. The co-ordination of the actions of all its members and attentive attitude to detail is evidenced by numerous medals and awards of Cave de Turckheim products.
