- Cellar Drink Now - 2 years (2010-2012)
- Closure: Cork
Classic "Hugel" wines are made exclusively from grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract, in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr.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 barrels or 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 the cellars until released for sale.
This dry, juicy white exhibits notes of apple, flowers and honey on the palate. This is fresh and clean, finishing with a hint of smokiness. Drink now.
