Tradition in a glass, the Alsace region of France has been producing wine for nearly 2,000 years and this history can be tasted in each and every glass of the Hugel Gewurztraminer 2010.
From the Winemaker
Produced by the Hugel family, 12 generation of unbroken winegrowing tradition since 1639. Alsace is the driest wine region in France with a cool and long growing season giving unique dry wines with great finesse and unequalled intensity. Gewurztraminer is the great specialty of our region. Spicy and suave, it can be enjoyed on its own, but makes a marvellous accompaniment to all rich, spicy dishes, smoked fish and Oriental cuisine.
The 2010 Gewurztraminer 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.
"One key Hugel belief is that: ‘The wine is already in the grape’. If ever you have the chance to taste grapes off the vine, the most delicious by far are those of gewürztraminer. They give such seductive flavours and aromatics of spice, rose petal, honeysuckle, even a speck of ginger… Made into the most glorious wines of the heavens, add in an oiliness, a golden hue and a lingering, dry finish." - tigchandler.com
