Hugel Classic Gewurtztraminer

Wine: Hugel ‘Classic’ Gewurztraminer

Producer: Famille Hugel

Country: France

Region: Alsace

Vintage: 2016

Style: White

Blend: Gewurztraminer 100%

ABV: 13%

Size: 75cl

Vegan

 

Notes: The spice of Alsace & one of Famille Hugel’s signature wines. The Classic Gewurztraminer is aromatic & expressive through its floral & spicy notes. A wine to accompany a variety of spicy Asian dishes as well as smoked salmon & strong cheeses.

Originally from northern Italy, this is the emblematic grape of the Alsace region due to its slow maturation with cool nights giving its full varietal expression. Dry but intensely aromatic & an all round delicious wine from one of our favourite French producers.

 

Producer Info: In 1639 the Hugel family settled in the picturesque little town of Riquewihr in Alsace, where they have remained ever since. Today Famille Hugel retains the character of a true family wine business & is currently managed by the 12th & 13th generations of the family.

They own an estate of 30 hectares of prime sites around the historic & picturesque town of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, where vineyards have been cultivated for more than 2,000 years. More than half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru: the Schoenenbourg, known for its Riesling, & the Sporen for its Gewurztraminer. It also buys grapes from a further 100 hectares farmed by partner growers who have the same clay & limestone dominated terroirs that help to define the unique character & style of their wines. All grapes are, & always have been, picked by hand. The estates are exclusively planted with the noble Alsace grape varieties & the vines have an average age of 35 years. Famille Hugel production averages 100,000 cases per year, of which around 90% is exported to more than 100 countries worldwide, where the name ‘Alsace’ has become synonymous with Hugel wines.
