Hugel ‘Gentil’ Alsace 2015

Blended White from France - Alsace
Review Date : 05-Apr-2017
Pale straw-yellow colour. The nose is softly up-front and gentle with subtly intricate aromatics, showing white and yellow stonefruits with yellow florals and lifted spice nuances. A little honeysuckle emerges as the nose grows in volume with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and rounded in an easy proportion with an array of softly presented aromatic fruits, along with stonefruits, florals and honied elements. The wine flows smoothly with integrated acidity, to a light finish. This is true to its name and indeed an approachable, gentle, softly aromatic wine without distinctive definition. An anytime wine. 50% Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc, 22% Pinot Gris, 15% Gewurztraminer, 7% Riesling and 6% Muscat, vines 25 y.o., fermented to 13.0% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $31.95
