Bright, gold-tinged yellow. Lichee, grapefruit, sweet spices and a hint of grilled bacon on the musky, perfumed nose. Then very clean in the mouth, showing smoke and saline notes to the lemon, orchard fruit and green papaya flavors. This persistent wine boasts sneaky concentration and power, with noteworthy 7.7 g/l acidity for Gewürztraminer providing lift. Finishes with a welcome nuance of sweetness (10.2 g/l residual sugar). About 100,000 bottles were made.
Summary Terroir: The grapes used to produce Hugels "Classic" wines come exclusively from estate owned vineyards or from growers under long term contract surrounding the village of Riquewihr. Vinification: Hugel Gewurztraminer is a flagship wine for the Hugel family. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats followed by natural clarification in nuetral vessels over the winter. The wine is lightly fined and gently filtered prior to bottling in the spring. From The Wine Advocate "New is the Classic (former Hugel) range that represents "the essence of the pure, dry Famille Hugel style" and now includes Muscat and Pinot Gris, along with all the other noble grapes. The grapes of the Classic range are predominantly purchased but obligatory hand-picked from vineyards with clay-limestone soils in Riquewihr and neighbouring villages, and give classic gastronomic wines with a dry expression."
