This is a rather exotic and intense version of gewurztraminer, very ripe and clearly an expression of the Turckheim mixed stone terroir. While the wine is obviously rich with a high degree of alcohol it is also relatively dry.

Tasting Note

Exotic aromas of peach, apricot, lychee and leather suggest a robust palate presence. The wine is expansive and velvety with a creamy texture over the long finish. This is Indice 2 so just slightly off-dry.

Food Pairing

This pairs well with assertive cuisines with personality, including chile heat, black pepper, various types of curry. This will also accompany salty or aged cheeses with strong character.

Unique Selling Points
  • A Roche series wine with intensity and typicity for early consumption
  • The Roulee wines are generous and forward, due to full sun exposure and stony soils
  • A crucial link between the basic gewurztraminer and more lofty Grand Cru expressions

About the Grape

Gewürztraminer
Gewürztraminer has unmistakably heady intensity of fragrance, with pungent aromas of litchis, tropical fruits and rose petals. Its flavors are ample, fruity and spicy rather than complex.
