Pinot Gris 'Sables et Galets'

2020 Alsace, France, 75cl

Cave de Turckheim Pinot Gris 'Sables et Galets'

Whilst the Italian version Pinot Grigio is enjoying huge success, it’s examples like this that makes one appreciate the quality that Pinot Gris is capable of producing. ‘Sables et Galets’ is sourced from the Herrenweg vineyards in the Fetch Valley, scattered with sandy/pebbly soils created during glacial shifts in the nearby Vosges mountains imparting a sense of minerality to the wine. However, hints of acacia honey, quince and delicate warm spice are layered throughout and this complex Pinot Gris offers some grapey richness on the palate but is firmly balanced with well-judged acidity on the finish. This wine consistently surprises people, a really excellent example of Pinot Gris. Apéritif par excellence, this works really well with richer foods and Asian cuisine.

Behind the bottle: Cave de Turckheim

Widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world, Cave de Turckheim lies at the mouth of the Munster Valley. Working closely with 180 partners, its vineyards span the full breadth of Alsatian terroir and grape varieties. Cave de Turckheim only produces wine from the grapes of its member growers, it is a récoltant not a négociant.

Substantial investment in the winery has enabled the team to vinify many parcels of grapes separately, offering Michel Lihrmann (senior winemaker for 25 years) the chance to highlight each wine’s nuances in his signature dry, yet fruit forward, style.

Committed to producing the highest quality wines, growers are encouraged to keep yields low – for example, Cave de Turckheim voluntarily caps yields for its Grands Crus vineyards at 45hl/ha rather than the permitted 55hl/ha – and to pick the grapes by hand. This is part of a long term and innovative strategy of sustainability that includes developing the largest holdings of organic vineyards in Alsace, using natural alternatives to chemical treatments, and a green overview of all vineyard practices.
