Hugel Gewurtztraminer 2006
white peach, grapefruit aromas with some green apple. lemon notes on the palate, light citrus flavors with a little grassy herbalness, easy drinking and refreshing
A excellent combination indeed with the full-styled wine showing elements of lychees, ginger and pineapple and an light oily texture. Sublime. http://www.spittoon.biz/alsace_wine_with_food_thoughts.html
Eggs are always tricky to match with a wine but the Hugel Pinot Blanc 2006 had just the right edge of acidity to keep all in check. By itself the wine was less than stellar; with the food an excellent foil.
This is an easy drinking wine, perfect for a hot summer day or with guests who are not 'into' wine. Pours a pale straw color, crystal clear. Moderate amounts of peaches, pears and honeysuckle flavors. Starts off very light with some peaches. In the middle there are some honeysuckle tones and some pears. Finishes just like the middle. This is a light bodied wine with decent acidity for its age. Probably should have been drunk a few years ago. Nothing overly complex, but does the job.
External Reviews for Hugel Gewurtztraminer
Wine Tasting NotesFrank, spontaneous, expressive, wonderfully perfumed with a multitude of floral aromas, rose, freesia, mullein, acacia, frangipani and hawthorn, its bouquet is fragrant, fruity and attractively light. Refreshingly clean and dry on the palate, deceptively easy to enjoy, it has a soft, gentle finish with a nicely integrated structure and opulence.
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.
