Quite a deep straw-yellow colour 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. It will also match lightly spiced food: exotic, oriental, Chinese, Indonesian or Indian, as well as cheese: blue, munster or maroilles.

Wine EnthusiastA great representative of its type, the Hugel 2008 Gewürztraminer is elegant and fresh, with scents of carnations and rose petals on the nose followed by peach and spice cake in the mouth. A finish of hothouse flowers gives this a touch of class. Drink now.

Wine SpectatorDisplays cold cream and rose petal notes, with more subtle lychee and spice. Dry and lightly fleshy, with a modest finish. Drink now.
