Hugel & Fils Gewurztraminer is made exclusively from hand harvested grapes, predominantly clay and limestone vineyards. Scattered over a dozen of the most favored localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season gave this unique dry wine great finesse and unequalled intensity. The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity. Without any pumping or other mechanical intervention.
After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature-controlled vats (at 18 to 24°C). The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged in cellars until released for sale. The whole production of this wine is closed with DIAM the cork without the risk of cork taint(not asking you to diam.. Its DIAM).
We love Gewurztraminer because it can be paired with so many cuisines! White meats - Seafood - Asian food - Soft Cheese - Especially my favourite Mala and Curry.
