Ok, we’re big fans of Pinot Blanc anyway but this is just class.
The Clos de la Tourelle vineyard, planted entirely with Pinot Blanc, is part of the Château d’Ollwiller estate in Wuenheim, one of only two castles in Alsace to produce wine under the name “château”.
Gold in colour, the nose is subtle but quite complex, hints of stone-fruit, citrus peel and dried fruit, like fig. Its in the mouth you get the quality of fruit flowing through, rounded and minerally with hints of pear, apricot and fig, floral notes like rose and elderflower, and just a splash of citrus ahead of a long unwind on the finish.
Pairs brilliantly with fish and chicken dishes, we love it with Sunday roast chicken and roast potatoes.
