Description of the wine Riesling Turckheim 2000

In 2000, this wine was made from 3 different small parcels located in the Brand vineyard, all three young vines (average of 18 years old). The climate is very warm and the soil is pure granite. In this stressful vineyard (for the vines, not the grower!), the grapes were harvested early, very ripe, with excellent fruit character and acidity.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The wine shows all the granitic influence: mineral but not restraint, long and rich palate, finishes dry with a wide and rich texture. This is showing already a lot of the potential of this wine. Can be served with richer dishes as well as delicate fish.
