SummaryThe Hugel Gentil revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines produced from a blend of noble varietals were called "Gentil".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 Gentil is a traditional Alsace blend of primarily Gewurztraminer paired with varying amounts of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Muscat and Sylvaner. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats followed by natural clarification in neutral vessels over the winter.

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Sylvaner. Very youthful color, lively and crystal-clear, with pale green and lemon yellow pastel hints. This image is faithfully reproduced on the nose, perfectly aromatic, frank, sincere, revealing a palette of fruit and floral nuances that can only be found in blend of Alsace grapes : green apple, pear, white peach, banana, pineapple, lychee, and a profusion of spring flowers, rose, freesia and a subtle touch of muscatel. On the palate it is dry, lively, joyfully crisp and clear, and exactly as it should be : refreshing and easy to enjoy. Its finish is fleeting but firm, and another sip is instinctively called for. Drink it now or within 2 years.
