Gewurztraminer Selection Grains Nobles 1989 Hugel
This firm has just released a superb 1989 Tokay-Pinot Gris 'Hugel' Selection de Grains Nobles. Copious quantities of smoky/spicy peaches, apricots, and poached pears can be found in this medium-to-full-bodied wine. It is highly-focused, velvety-textured, fresh, and youthful - even after ten years of bottle age. Caramelized orange rinds, apricot jam, loads of botrytis, and yellow plums (mirabelles) are discernable in this elegant offering's personality.

Very fresh and young for its age, this vivid Gewürz offers the signature spice and litchi flavors with good focus and moderate sweetness. There's plenty of pineapple and banana flavors to pair up with desserts, and enough depth to enjoy this on its own.
