Gewurztraminer 2009

France » Alsace » Hugel et Fils » Gewurztraminer 2009

Summary

Terroir: The grapes used to produce Hugels "Classic" wines come exclusively from estate owned vineyards or from growers under long term contract surrounding the village of Riquewihr.

Vinification: Hugel Gewurztraminer is a flagship wine for the Hugel family. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats followed by natural clarification in nuetral vessels over the winter. The wine is lightly fined and gently filtered prior to bottling in the spring.

Vintage Notes

The wine has expressive aromas that are typically floral, with roses, orange blossom, hawthorn, Williams pear, lychee, and a note of oriental fragrance. On the palate, the wine is dry, yet rich, fine and elegant, with excellent balance. While it can be enjoyed upon release to enjoy its freshness and verve, it can also be kept for 2 to 3 years.

Varietal: Gewurztraminer: 100%

    "If you're a sucker for sweet potatoes... Hugel Gewurztraminer when coupled with yam, this light yet full-bodied wine tinged with honey and honeydew forms an eHarmony-worthy match."

    "Fragrant, honeyed, very charming and not at all overdone. A Gewrz for all palates, this - intrinsically good stuff."
