Hugel’s “Jubilee” are sourced exclusively from family owned Grand Cru vineyards in the top terroirs in Alsace.
Terroir: Sourced from the family owned parcel of the Grand Cru Sporen vineyard on the slopes just outside of Riquewihr. Soils here are primarily clay and chalk.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and brought to the winery in Riquewihr for additional sorting prior to vinification. After a strict sorting the grapes are pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in either stainless steel or large neutral oak casks. The young wines are then fed by gravity to the cellars for aging. Following aging the wines are lightly filtered, bottled and then stored until release to the market.
“A deep but youthful colour, intense pale greenish yellow, star bright luscious “tears” on the glass.
Characteristically rich and vinous bouquet, perfumed and spicily aromatic: saffron pistil, cardamom, bourbon vanilla, liquorice, rose petal, jasmine, with acacia, almond and orange blossom.
A wine with superb structure, rich, ripe, opulent and full-bodied, it has the tannic backbone that is always noticeable in Gewurztraminers from the finest soils, giving persistence and depth.” -Hugel et Fils
