Hugel 2016 (Alsace)

Name Hugel 2016
Varietal Gentil
Region Alsace
Notes "This light-bodied white jangles with tangy acidity, offering a stony underpinning to the lively mix of Honeycrisp apple, white cherry, basil and pickled ginger. Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling and others. Drink now through 2019. 30,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"The 2016 Gentil Hugel is a blend of all the white Alsatian grape varieties that had been bottled the day before I tasted it in late April 2017. The wine is clear, fresh and aromatic on the nose, terribly crisp and piquant on the palate, provided with a really racy acidity. The 2016 has good phenolic grip and tension and is pleasantly light at 12.6% alcohol. A really stimulating aperitif." (Wine Advocate)
