Hugel et Fils Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Hugel 2008
The great speciality of the House of Hugel. Only in Alsace does the aromatic expressiveness of this variety attain such summits. Spicy and suave, it can be enjoyed on its own, but makes a marvellous accompaniment to all rich, spicy dishes, smoked fish, & Asian cuisine.*_HALF-BOTTLE_*

Pale straw-yellow. Gingery spice on the nose. Juicy, aromatic and fairly dry, with good focus to the flavors of peach and ginger. Part of this wine went through malolactic fermentation, which is rare for this bottling.
Young and bright, pale pistachio green in colour, languorous 'tears' shimmer down the glass.Its nicely perfumed fruit bouquet of mango, cumquat and citron is overlaid by sophisticated aromas of roses and fresh oriental spices with citrus hints.The same dynamic, vivacious character can be found on the palate. The wine is dry, with a subtle harmony, soft, velvety and elegantly scented, that makes it agreeably easy to enjoy.
