Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Quite a deep straw yellow color with youthful, pale green highlights, it is star-bright with fine, unctuous "tears" that trickle down the glass. One is immediately overwhelmed by its graceful, charming perfume and aromas, from fresh-cut roses to the most mystic of oriental spices. Silky, supple, soft and seductive, yet still dry and refreshing, it has body and structure, with an aromatic finish of juicy, flavourful grapes. A wine to enjoy now or in the next 2 or 3 years, as an aperitif, served chilled at 8°C. It will also match lightly spiced food : exotic, oriental, Chinese, Indonesian or Indian, as well as cheese : blue, munster or maroilles.

Critical Acclaim

"Rose petal and sea breeze in the nose of Hugel’s 2008 Gewurztraminer Tradition lead to a correspondingly maritime and perfumed palate, richly-textured and – in contrast to other wines of the present collection – a bit awkwardly lactic. This finishes with excellent persistence, though, soothingly suggesting salted caramel. "
