Hugel Vendange Tardive Gewurztraminer 1997

SKU 29233


A very great vintage in Alsace with record levels of maturity. Ideal weather conditions in the Spring, with just the right amount of rain, were followed by a drought that lasted from August right through to early November. The crop was average in size, but the grapes were perfectly sound, with in some cases quite low acidity.

Wine EnthusiastDense rose and tangerine aromas open to a rich, sweet but not over-the-top palate. Thick and smooth, the mouthfeel is very sexy, with lychee and grapefruit flavors. The long, spicy finish is ripe and seductive.

Wine SpectatorFresh, clean and thickly textured, here's a honeyed VT without a lot of expression and character today. Perhaps it just needs time for the residual sugar to integrate. Best from 2000 through 2005.
