Description of the wine Riesling Turckheim 2022

This wine originates from the gravelly sandy loam valley floor of Turckheim. In 2022, the crop was particularly small due to important losses during flowering and very small berries, consequence of a dry and hot summer. Usually, the oldest vines go into the Roche Roulée cuvée, but in 2022, both wines were blended together in a smaller cask. A high skin/juice ratio can explain the intense aromatic profile of this wine. The lack of water also slowed down the sugar ripeness. Despite waiting longer than usual, the sugar ripeness stayed low while the skins continued to ripen. This is the only Riesling that fermented quickly in 2022 and ended completely dry.

Tasting notes

01/2024: pale yellow clear colour. The nose is delicately perfumed, Riesling can be quite flowery, and this wine shows it well. The lacy texture is already apparent on the nose, showing a medium intensity without the stony/mineral signature of more serious vineyard. The palate is immediately enjoyable: light, elegant, juicy, uncomplicated. It is a bone-dry wine with an easy drinkable mouthfeel. To be enjoyed now!
