Cave de Turckheim Alsace Pinot Blanc 2013

$17.99

From Alsace, this Pinot Blanc is light but round. It has great minerality but also nice citrus, almond & pear notes. This is a great Thanksgiving wine.

The 2013 Cave de Turckheim Pinot Blanc, Alsace, is a lot like me, perhaps, misunderstood and underrated because many don't know what pinot blanc is. It's a mutation of pinot noir and a versatile white wine that you can pair with almost anything, even quiche. Given that, I decided to pair it with my dinner eggs, since eggs are my primary protein of choice these days. Alsatian Pinot Blanc is often described as "musky," but I don't get that at all on this wine. It's fermented and aged in stainless steel and contains a smidgen of auxerrois, which enhances the fruitiness and spiciness of this wine. Aromas and flavors run the gamut from citrus peel, to crisp apple, to white peach, with medium acidity and a creamy texture. Pair this with brunch fare like eggs, or with a wide range of foods like seafood, shellfish, salads, and soft cheeses. SRP $19. (sample)

Love it anytime, but might be their perfect white for fall. Nice acidity, lively. 12%
