Hugel et Fils - Jubilee Gewurztraminer 2009White Wine
A wine with superb structure, rich, ripe, opulent and full-bodied, it has the tannic backbone that is always noticeable in Gewurztraminers from the finest soils, giving persistence and depth.
A deep but youthful colour, intense pale greenish yellow, star bright luscious tears on the glass.
Characteristically rich and vinous bouquet, perfumed and spicily aromatic: saffron pistil, cardamom, bourbon vanilla, liquorice, rose petal, jasmine, with acacia, almond and orange blossom.
Enjoy this wine now though it will keep for 5 to 8 years.
Serve with tasty and spicy oriental dishes, with Chinese, Indian or Moroccan specialties, whether fish or meat , veal and game birds, in sweet and sour sauce, soya marinade or sukiyaki. And of course with strong cheeses: munster, maroilles.
