2009 Hugel Tradition Gewurztraminer 12x37.5cl
Gewurztraminer : 100%
France / Alsace
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Spicy and suave, it can be enjoyed on its own, but makes a marvellous accompaniment to all rich, spicy dishes, smoked fish, Oriental dishes.
Intensely young colour, pale yellow, nicely bright, with thick, creamy "legs".
Restrained bouquet, pleasantly discreet, subtly fruity and floral : very ripe apricot, golden delicious apple, acacia, almond blossom, soft and harmonious.
In the mouth, what a nice surprise, luscious, juicy, soft and velvety, not heavy, with nicely balanced aromas and perfume, then a dry, flattering aftertaste.
