Hugel Jubilee Gewurztraminer 2008
Wine SpectatorFinely balanced, with a streak of minerality underscoring well-meshed flavors of white peach, lemon curd and candle wax. Juicy throughout and silky in texture, this elegant version features a zesty edge to the lasting finish. Drink now through 2023. 25 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateBlood orange, pink grapefruit, caraway, musky animal scents, and a variety-typical hint of litchi all inform the nose of Hugel's 2008 Gewurztraminer Jubilee, then remerge on a palate both creamy and silken and yet also possessed of a vivacity and primary juiciness one seldom encounters in its genre. Peppery, saline, and zesty notes - along with a continuation of caraway - make for a finish of tactile intensity. This should prove fascinating at table for at least the next dozen years.
