Cave de Turckheim (Alsace) Pinot Blanc 1997
The Turckheim co-operative is normally sound if a little unexciting, but this wine comes from a terrific vintage in Alsace and really is excellent at the price. The nose is nicely waxy and honeyed with tropical hints on top of melon fruit. The palate is quite full and lush with ripe pear and melon flavours and notes of spice. There is good orange-pithy acidity that shows up in the finish. A good all-round food wine. Oddbins 4.99 (05/99)
