Hugel ‘Classic’ Alsace Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from France - Alsace
Review Date : 05-Apr-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour, a little paler on rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with well-packed aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight and musk, along with honied undertones, root ginger and a little SO2. Medium-dry to taste and fullish-bodied, the flavours are initially shy, with a mineral overlay along with tightly bound flavours of exotic florals, Turkish Delight and musk. The acidity is gentle, but refreshinf and the wine flows a light, textural line. Some secondary savoury musk notes emerge and carry to an elegant, dry, lingering finish. This is still tightly bound, but showing savoury secondary hints. 100% Gewurztraminer, some of the fruit from the ‘Sporen’ grand cru, vines 30 y.o., with the inclusion of 10% botrytised grapes, fermented to 13.18% alc. and 10.2 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $42.95
