Hugel Classic Gewurztraminer 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

*Jane MacQuitty's 100 Best Wines for Winter* Classic "Hugel" wines are made exclusively from grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract, in a dozen of the most favoured localities around Riquewihr. This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". The Gewurztraminer has a nice young colour, pale green with lemon yellow hints and a lazily unctuous appearance. The bouquet is expressive, aromatic, perfumed and very typically floral : various roses, orange blossom, hawthorn, Williams pear, lychee, with a hint of oriental fragrance. A fine example of a Gewurztraminer. On the palate we find all the charm of this grape variety. While remaining dry, it caresses and flatters with richness of flavour and elegant perfume. Excellent balance. A wine to drink within the year to appreciate its freshness and verve, it can also be kept for 2 to 3 years. Serve at 8°C as an aperitif, or at any time of the day for the pleasure it gives. It would go well with all flavourful or exotic cuisines, with oriental spices, with Chinese, Indonesian or Indian dishes, but also with blue cheeses, or cheeses such as munster or maroilles. "Start your festive feast with smoked salmon and this exotic, blossomy Alsace gewurz, with grated orange peel, jasmine and rose petal-sented fruit. It's a fine festive standby for spiced dishes, and a good partner to stilton and other strong cheeses." - Jane MacQuitty, 3rd December 2016
