The Gewurztraminer is still probably the most important grape variety in Turckheim in terms of acreage planted. The precocious and dry climate would help to ripen a grape variety that needs and enjoys some warmth and sunshine during the ripening period prior harvest. Something that is abundant in Turckheim! The 2019 vintage had the right weather combination for this grape variety. Some millerandage and coulure, due to colder temperatures around flowering, also dropped the yields by 10 to 20%. This wasn’t a problem, and on the contrary it helped the grapes to get more concentrated in flavours. 2019 is probably on of the nicest vintage for Gewurztraminer in this area for many years. The wine, slightly richer than usual, didn’t finish to ferment dry and kept a very small amount of residual sweetness.
