Famille Hugel 2005 SGN Gewurztraminer

From the 2005 vintage, and in the hands of the specialists in late-harvest VT and SGN wines, nothing less than an exceptional SGN could be expected. The result is the wine of one's dreams ! It has a deep, intense yellow-gold colour with excellent viscosity, a rich, unctuous appearance with an attractive, bright satin finish. The bouquet is rich, deep and complex, revealing over-ripe Gewurztraminer grapes affected by botrytis under ideal conditions, while retaining the aromatic personality of this varietal : honeyed aromas of currants, papaya, mango, kumquat, apricot and baked apple, finishing with a touch of gentle spice. This is a liqueur wine, with a soft sweetness that coats the palate, full, rich and very flavourful.
